Marcus Rashford gives his thoughts on scoring the winning goal against Hull City

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has expressed his delight after scoring the winning goal against Hull City on Saturday evening.

The Englishman came off the bench and helped Jose Mourinho’s side claim all three points with a 92nd-minute strike.

He was dropped from Sam Ayllardyce’s England squad earlier in the week for not playing enough regular football at Old Trafford and has gone the perfect way about proving his ability.

Speaking about the campaign, Rashford insists he has been able to learn plenty from Zlatan Ibrahimovic each day.

“Amazing. First away game for me this season and happy to get the three points and goal,” he said.

“The fans came onto the pitch to celebrate and that is part of football. I am getting on in training and waiting for moments like this.

“It is being amazing being around players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic every day, I am learning a lot from them.”

He has continued to knock down all expectations of himself and his winner saw him become the first teenager to score a Premier League goal for a team managed by Mourinho.

While many think he has been forced to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Man United, the Swede’s arrival will help take the goal-scoring burden off the 18-year-old’s shoulders while allowing him to develop as a player.

Rashford has the opportunity to learn from one of the best strikers in the world, and combined with his natural talent, he’ll be one hell of a striker by the time Ibrahimovic leaves Old Trafford.
