Marcus Rashford scored his 100th Manchester United goal against West Ham in their Premier League contest, but he has revealed that he wasn’t in the right space for much of last season.
His goal sealed an important win for United on a day they celebrated their 85th anniversary as a club. The 24-year-old powered home a firm header seven minutes from the break after Christian Eriksen had curled over a superb far-post cross, making Rashford the 22nd United player to reach 100 goals.
“It’s been on my mind the last couple of games,” Rashford told Sky Sports. “I’ve been waiting for it to come and thankfully it did.
He added: “It’s a completely different energy around the club and the training ground. That puts me in a better head-space and I just feel really motivated now.
“I was struggling at times with more mental things. It wasn’t really my own performance but other things off the pitch. That’s the biggest difference from last season.
“Too often last season, I wasn’t in the right head-space for games. I wasn’t surprised by some of the stuff that was happening.” BBC
