Man Utd ace Rashford: Overseas tour massive experience

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is excited ahead of his first overseas tour.

Rashford will be part of the travelling squad that leaves for China on Tuesday ahead of matches with Borussia Dortmund (22 July) and Manchester City (25 July).

“It means a lot to be going,” he told “It’s an opportunity to show the manager what you’ve got and you have to take the opportunity when it comes.

“It would be a massive experience especially with the players that could be going as well. I’ve got a lot I can learn from them.”

Asia is somewhere Rashford has been before with United’s youth team and he recalls being taken aback by the level of support for the Reds.

“It’s crazy to see their support. The conditions can be difficult to play in as we witnessed in the tournament we were in back then but we got through it and it was a really good experience.”

As for what constitutes a good pre-season, the striker added: “First and foremost a lot of touches of the ball. The training part of the tour is a big thing and getting used to the players and the personalities. I’m really looking forward to it.”
