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.”
