Rashford's positive update from training
Marcus Rashford has happily reported that most of his Manchester United team-mates have been training hard at Carrington - and more players are set to join the squad on Thursday.
Our recent games against Brentford and Brighton were both postponed, of course, but next Monday’s trip to Newcastle is on and Ralf Rangnick’s Reds are looking forward to the occasion.
As Rashford told us at Carrington today, the players have handled the recent postponements professionally and everybody is excited for our return to action at St. James’ Park.
“The lads have been training and today we brought all the rest of the lads back to training, there are only a couple left that will be coming in tomorrow," says Marcus in the latest episode of our news bulletin, United Daily.
“So, we’ve pretty much got the full squad back, which is a positive going into the week.”
Rashford believes everyone is determined to build on these positive results, starting at Newcastle: “Everyone is looking forward and everyone is very positive at the minute. We were all disappointed when the last game got cancelled but, at the end of the day, there’s nothing you can really do about it. We have to just focus on the next game that will be played and hopefully that game goes ahead.”
“Yeah, I definitely enjoy this time of year. I think the way you start the season and the way you play, and the results you get around the Christmas period, are probably the two most important points [in the season]. So, if we have a good Christmas period now, then we can keep that momentum going and that will take you into the big games where the trophies are, come the end of the season.”
