Rashford: Man Utd players excited this season

Marcus Rashford insists Manchester United can be title contenders this seson.

Rashford is convinced he could return from England duty as a World Cup winner – and just as certain United can regain their place in the Champions League.

He insisted: “Yeah, definitely. Why not? We are not in a bad position at the moment, but obviously we want to be higher up on the table.

“It is quite tight, and we just have to concentrate on improving. It is not going to happen overnight, but at the same time we want it to, so we are pushing for it this season.

“The type of football we play is very physically demanding and I think a break will be good for the lads that get a break.

“We’ve got a really good squad, and we want to come back at the end of December full of energy and really take the games head on. I think everyone is excited.”
