Erik ten Hag believes Marcus Rashford’s return to form is down to him being happy at Manchester United again.
The 24-year-old endured a hugely frustrating campaign last time out when a lack of form saw him drop out of the pecking order at Old Trafford.
It looked like the striker was set to leave the club with Paris Saint-Germain transfer rumors but Ten Hag’s arrival saw Rashford regain his undoubted quality.
So far this season, the 24-year-old has scored three goals and created two for United in the Premier League, which Ten Hag is delighted to see.
Asked what has changed for Rashford this season, Ten Hag said: “Again it is difficult for me to talk about the past.
“But what I see: I see a happy Marcus Rashford and I see phases of his game that we could improve.
“And we’ve been working really hard over the last two and a half months with him on different aspects.
“He likes it, and he wants to transfer it to the pitch, and that’s what you see right now.”
