Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has revealed he’s well rested ahead of the new season.
Rashford also revealed this summer is the first time since 2019 that he’s having a proper pre-season.
Marcus Rashford told Manchester United official website: “I have definitely not had that much rest before in a summer break.
“So it was a little bit strange at first and I had to adjust my program a little bit, make it a little bit longer, so I could come in with a positive look on everything, and like I say we are excited to go away [on tour] now.
“You feel every day now you are getting that one step sharper and one step fitter to being ready for the season.
“I don’t think I have had a proper pre-season since 2019 so for me it is definitely a positive thing.
“I feel like I probably needed that time to switch off a little bit and me having that time enabled me to refocus a lot earlier than I expected to be honest.
“It [the break] was just a few days over four weeks and I always split it in half, so I had two weeks when I was just relaxing and a little over two weeks when I was training so it’s been a good period for me.
“Like I say, I feel ready and focused so when that first game does come it’s good to know you have done almost six weeks of training beforehand. It will definitely be a positive.”
