April's Inside United magazine is out now

Tuesday 14 March 2023 13:44

The new issue of our official club magazine, Inside United, is here with Marcel Sabitzer leading the way on the front cover.

We find out inside the issue, via an exclusive in-depth interview, that though the midfielder is serious about his game and is an ultimate professional, he’s a warm and friendly character too.

In his Q&A – which you can read first in Inside United – our on-loan man describes growing up in Graz, south-east Austria. With a professional footballer for a father, Marcel explains that he was immersed in the game from an early age and the dream of emulating his dad and becoming a professional player himself was one that he held from the outset: “I knew, at a very young age, I would have my own footsteps," he says, in the interview.

Sabitzer goes on to explain just how those footsteps were taken, describing his journey through the football ranks, from a pro debut at 16 in Austria all the way to the here and now at Manchester United – where, at age 28 and with a wealth of experience to his name. He tells IU: “At this point, I can say I am ready for everything.” 

It’s a compelling interview and a special insight for United fans into the player and the person.

There are plenty of other names in the magazine, modern and vintage. Marcus Rashford’s phenomenal form is given the forensic treatment, while Rashy also makes a separate appearance in a feature that examines the club scoring record that he has equalled this season: notching in nine home games in succession. 

The man whose record Marcus has taken a share in is legendary Busby Babe Dennis Viollet – and Viollet has a deserved feature all to himself, marking 70 years since the ace goalscorer made his United debut during a golden era for the club in the 1950s.

Awards double for Rashford


Marcus Rashford celebrates yet another accolade, and picks out his best moment from February.

Two other Reds in the classic bracket appear back-to-back in a UTD Podcast showcase special – first Gordon Strachan, then Teddy Sheringham – while a step further along the Sir Alex Ferguson timeline, Darren Fletcher looks back on his journey through the Reds youth ranks and into the first team, always under the paternal eye of his legendary fellow Scot.

There is lots more besides, including a Q&A with Maria Thorisdottir as United Women look forward to a big game – in front of a big crowd – at Old Trafford.
