Man Utd attacker Rashford 'ready and focused' for first full preseason in three years
Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has said he feels "ready and focused" to bounce back from a disappointing 2021/22 campaign.
The England international revealed he spent his holidays getting prepared for United's preseason under new manager Erik ten Hag.
Speaking to MUTV, Rashford said: "I have definitely not had that much rest before in a summer break, so it was a little bit strange at first and I had to adjust my program a little bit, make it a little bit longer, so I could come in with a positive look on everything, and like I say we are excited to go away [on tour] now.
"You feel every day now you are getting that one step sharper and one step fitter to being ready for the season.
"I don't think I have had a proper pre-season since 2019 so for me it is definitely a positive thing. I feel like I probably needed that time to switch off a little bit and me having that time enabled me to refocus a lot earlier than I expected to be honest. It [the break] was just a few days over four weeks and I always split it in half, so I had two weeks when I was just relaxing and a little over two weeks when I was training so it's been a good period for me. "Like I say, I feel ready and focused so when that first game does come it's good to know you have done almost six weeks of training beforehand. It will definitely be a positive."
