Marcus Rashford delighted being part of Man Utd's win over Galatasaray

Marcus Rashford was delighted to be part of Manchester United’s win over Galatasaray.

The teen made an impressive impact on the game after coming on as half-time substitute, in particular in the way he earned the penalty that Wayne Rooney converted for United’s third goal.

He told MUTV: “It’s really important to get that first win together as a group, it’s great for us in the build-up to the season. The manager wasn’t concerned [with United being 2-1 down at half-time] and just told us to push and close the space, something we did really well in the second half.

“There’s a lot of optimism, as that is only our second pre-season game as a full squad – it was the first game for some players,” he added. “It is very exciting for both fans and players.”
