Marcus Rashford says it was ‘impossible’ to envisage top-four finish when Jose Mourinho was sacked

Marcus Rashford says it was 'impossible' to envisage top-four finish when Jose Mourinho was sacked

“Growing up at United, that’s what the feeling has always been like – like this – and to have it back, the way it is now, is amazing. That’s without even touching on what we’ve done on the pitch – how we’ve improved ourselves as a team, because that’s where we can still improve a lot.

“But the feeling I have now is all the players understand that. When everyone’s on the same page, there’s no telling how far we can get. What he’s done since he’s come in is remarkable.”

Nevertheless, Solskjaer faces a big challenge to help rediscover some momentum after back-to-back defeats and ensure the season does not tail off. United face Wolves again at Molineux, three days after the Watford match, before taking on Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

United looked disjointed and uncertain against Wolves on Saturday in a display more in keeping with Mourinho’s final months in charge but Rashford, speaking before that game, believes Solskjaer has changed the mindset by introducing an attacking, front foot approach.
