Cape Town - Manchester
United forward Marcus Rashford is determined to help Jose Mourinho's
side become as dominant as Sir Alex Ferguson's teams.
The Red Devils made the most of their home-ground advantage on
Saturday when they thrashed Newcastle United 4-1 at Old Trafford, with
Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling, Paul Pogba, and Romelu Lukaku getting
on the score-sheet.
Rashford believes the winning feeling has started to return to United
since Mourinho's arrival, as they claimed the Europa League and EFL Cup
last season, although he admits they still have a long way to go to
match the presence of Ferguson's teams, especially at home.
"It's definitely coming back, but where they were to where we are
now, we've still got a long way to go because they were consecutively
winning," Rashford was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"Consecutively winning is different to winning one thing or winning
two things. It's more difficult because everybody wants to beat you.
"We want to make it (Old Trafford) the fortress that it was before. I
think we're on a path back to doing that. We've got the right manager,
we have the right staff, so it's just about producing now on the field.
"That's what United has always been about, so it is important for us
to try and get that feeling back to Old Trafford of winning."
Mourinho's men next host Brighton in the English Premiership after their Champions League exploits and will be aiming to keep pace with log leaders Manchester City.
Kick off is at 17:00.
