Rashford: we did well to come back
Marcus Rashford said there were positives to take from Manchester United’s 3-3 draw with Sheffield United, during which the Reds scored three goals in seven minutes to turn the game on its head.
Speaking to MUTV after the match, the 22-year-old praised United’s desire to come back from a losing position after a poor first hour.
“We know that we didn’t play well enough in the first half,” the England forward conceded.
“But we managed to find it inside us to get back into the game and get in a good, strong position in the game.”
Rashford gives his verdict
The scorer of our third goal reacts to a topsy-turvy second half for the Reds...
Brandon Williams and Mason Greenwood hit their first Premier League goals for the Reds to cancel out efforts from John Fleck and Lys Mousset for the home side.
Rashford, who assisted Greenwood’s goal before adding the third himself, praised the impact of the two homegrown players and said they have all the mental attributes to establish themselves as Manchester United players.
“For Brandon, he has done brilliantly since he’s come up with us and obviously for Mason, for any forward, it’s beautiful to score a goal.” added Rashford.
“All they know is how to attack and play forward-thinking football and you can see with the way they attack they just bring that into their game and that is Man United.”
Oli McBurnie’s 90th minute equaliser ultimately denied United all three points in South Yorkshire.
After that late setback, Rashford insists that we need to come out of this match with a positive mindset going forward, aided by the passion and desire we showed to turn the result around.
“It’s important that we understand the bigger picture and the current situation we’re in and to show the fight that we did today.
“Credit to the team and to the manager and to the fans, it was a good spell to get back into the game.”
