Reflecting on his journey, Rashford stated in a club statement, "I joined Manchester United as a seven-year-old boy with a dream. That same passion, pride, and determination to succeed still drives me every time I have the honor of wearing the shirt."
Manchester United, the renowned English football giant, announced on Tuesday that Marcus Rashford has signed a fresh five-year contract.
The 25-year-old forward from England, whose existing contract was set to expire next year, emerged from the ranks of the Old Trafford youth system and has netted an impressive 123 goals in 359 appearances for the first team.
Reflecting on his journey, Rashford stated in a club statement, “I joined Manchester United as a seven-year-old boy with a dream. That same passion, pride, and determination to succeed still drive me every time I have the honor of wearing the shirt.”
He continued, “I’ve already had some incredible experiences at this prestigious club, but there is still much more to achieve. I remain relentlessly determined to win more trophies in the years ahead.”
Rashford added, “As a lifelong United fan, I understand the responsibility that comes with representing this badge, and I feel the highs and lows as much as anyone.
“I can assure you that I will give everything to help the team reach our full potential, and I can sense the same determination in the dressing room. I couldn’t be more excited for the future under this manager.” He added.
Last season, under the guidance of Erik ten Hag, Rashford surpassed the 30-goal mark for the first time in his Manchester United career as the club lifted the League Cup, ending a six-year trophy drought.
