Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is excited about the future.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beat Astana in their Europa League opener with a score of 1-0. The only goal of the game scored youngster Mason Greenwood.
Greenwood is the first player born in the 2000s to score a senior goal for Manchester United (October 2001).
“Not the best performance but it’s great to come off the pitch with a win,” the England international said. “There was a lot of good stuff. They were a tough team to break down, but I think it shows… if I look back to two years ago I don’t think the team had maybe the togetherness to come through a game like that. Everyone expects it’s going to be an easy game, but the opposition has come to win so it’s always a tough game.”
Rashford says, he is really excited by Greenwood’s potential.
“I am very happy,” Rashford said. “For me, being a person who’s been in his shoes in the past, for him to score that goal I know how he feels. And even more importantly, that’s the goal that won us the game, so I think that’s the thing that everybody should be talking about. Mason has been doing well since he’s joined the first team and 100 per cent there’s more to come from him, so I’m sure he’s excited and everyone else is excited as well.”
