Hungry Rashford can't stop working
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he has to rein in his exuberant Manchester United squad on the training ground.
The Reds are so keen to improve that the players are putting in voluntary overtime at the Aon Training Complex.
Marcus Rashford, who opened the scoring against Colchester in the 3-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final win, was so keen to practise, he was doing extra work, a little more than 24 hours before the match.
“There’s hunger there and they do extras,
“ said the boss. ”With the strikers, all the time, I was trying to hold Marcus back yesterday, but he wanted to do extra.
“It was two days after a game, the day before a game, but he was still on the training ground practising. That will come and we’re getting better and better.”
Rashford’s supplementary work epitomises the spirit of the United squad progressing under Solskjaer.
“It's a fantastic group. Great attitude, good competition, they push each other on and spur each other on,” said the manager, in his post-match interview with MUTV.
“The atmosphere is great so, for me, winning games breeds good confidence and good mood.
“They're in a good mood, they're in a happy place at the moment and let's just move on to Watford [on Sunday] now.
