Marcus Rashford is known for his desire and hunger to fight and improve consistently. The forward, for the second year in a row under Jose Mourinho, hasn’t quite reached the heights as expected.

The England international plays mainly down the flanks for United, and with places having stiff competition, he isn’t the first choice for Jose, who has Romelu Lukaku upfront and Alexis Sanchez on the left.

Even Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard are preferred on the right flank to show Rashford isn’t ahead in the pecking order.

Against Brighton, the Englishman was given a free role as a striker, but the player’s movements and final decision making disappointed the manager in the 1-0 loss. Jose was quick to lash out at Rashford after the game.

The player is still young and has a lot of scope for improvement. It has been revealed that he is desperate to improve under Jose and give his all for the Mancunian club. In fact, recent reports have revealed what the starlet demanded in order to improve earlier in the season.

As per M.E.N Sport, Rashford had requested for a special software to analyse how his game could develop as the other world-class wingers around the continent.

The youngster wanted to analyse his own performances and see where the differences lie with other players playing in the same role.

Rashford has made 49 appearances across all competitions for the Old Trafford outfit this season, and has 12 goals to his name.

The 20-year-old is sure to be on his way to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup next month, and will hope to finish on a high in the remaining three games for United this season.
