Manchester United's Marcus Rashford is raring and ready to go regarding a potential call up to the England Under 21's for their European Championships this summer, however it is all down to manager Jose Mourinho if he goes.

It will be a big decision for the United manager​ who will want Rashford in his squad for pre- season to prepare for the upcoming season, and so he can have some rest. The teenager has been speaking to the ​Sun though about how he would love to go to the tournament.


"It is up to the coaching staff and the managers to decide if I go to that. But if I do go, I’ll be approaching it with the same attitude as I do to the seniors. It is exciting times.

“Getting tournament experience is massive, as long as everything is aiming towards the long-term objective, we obviously want to be successful and win trophies.

“So whatever we have to do to get to that, whether it is going down to gain the experience, everyone is happy to do that.”

The 19-year-old also spoke about his experience at last years Euros with the senior side: “Obviously there is are a lot of lessons to be learnt. It was my first major tournament and going out was disappointing. 

“At the time you never want to be knocked out of a tournament, you always picture yourself going on to win it. All we can do now is get those experiences that we gained in the Iceland game and put everything together and move on for the future.”

Rashford explained how much he has matured since this time last year: “I’m a completely different player now compared to where I was this time last season. People don’t always look at that, they look at the results but they don’t look at what you do to get the results. When it all comes together people will start to realise.

“My overall game has changed. I’ve been playing in wider positions and now me knowing what the forwards wants helps me, and also helps me know that the winger wants when I get in the middle.

“Time goes very fast and it is about what you do in that time. All my focus is just on trying to improve for the future and to make history for my club and the country.”
