Marcus Rashford is proud to be apart of the small number of young players playing regular Premier League football.
The Manchester United whizkid has featured in 25 of 26 league matches this season. An investigation conducted by the Red Devils found that only 10 players in the league under the age of 21 has featured in at least two-thirds of fixtures.
Still only 20, Rashford has been with the first-team since making his debut under Louis van Gaal as an 18-year-old. He has also established himself as a regular in the England national team.
And speaking with the United Review, he acknowledged how he felt about being one of the few young players to be competing in the world’s toughest domestic competition.
“It is such a difficult thing to do and the stats obviously show it,” said Rashford.
“The fact there are only 10 or so playing shows how difficult it is to do it.
“I’d also say it’s harder at the top clubs, who can breed those types of players but they have fewer opportunities. “You have to just try to get in the team and then stay in the side, like everyone else.”
