Marcus Rashford Expresses Excitement Over Manchester United’s Summer Signing
Manchester United’s summer transfer activity has garnered significant praise from star player Marcus Rashford, who has singled out a particular acquisition that has left him “super excited” for the season ahead.
Ahead of the 2023–24 campaign, Manchester United made strategic additions to bolster their squad under the guidance of manager Erik ten Hag. These signings aimed to build upon the club’s third-place finish in the previous Premier League season and their victory in the first major trophy since 2017.
Among the notable arrivals were Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, and Andre Onana, who were central to the team’s plans. Additionally, the club secured the services of Sofyan Amrabat and Sergio Reguilon on loan. Furthermore, Manchester United made the shrewd decision to re-sign free agent Jonny Evans and acquire a backup goalkeeper.
Rashford, in particular, has been highly impressed by the addition of Danish international forward Rasmus Hojlund. He is eagerly anticipating the opportunity to develop a strong partnership with his new teammate.
Expressing his enthusiasm, Rashford conveyed his sentiments to Premier League Productions:
“I am honestly super excited about it. At times last year, we were going on counter-attacks and we would just see shirts of other bodies, and usually, the only cut-back that was on was to Bruno [Fernandes] who was arriving later.
Whereas this year, you have to understand the dynamics have changed, so we have spoken to each other and done a little bit of work off the pitch, probably that the coaching staff doesn’t even know, between [just] me and him.”
Rashford emphasized his desire to establish a mutual understanding of their respective styles of play as quickly as possible.
He also praised their early collaboration, highlighting a recent goal they created together.
Rashford believes that this partnership holds promise for both players and is excited about their future prospects.
Describing Hojlund’s attributes, Rashford noted, “He is a big, strong, physical lad, he has good finishing abilities. So when the chances do come to him, he will score goals.”
Overall, Rashford’s words reflect the optimism and excitement within the Manchester United camp as they embark on a new season with promising signings and renewed partnerships.
