Marcus Rashford feels ‘a lot more ready this season’ after completing Manchester United’s tour of Asia and Australia.
The Red Devils played four matches across the tour, claiming three wins and a draw.
“I think it’s normal when we’re not performing as we should perform [that] you get criticised,” Rashford said. “It’s part and parcel of the game.
“I’ve always said that I’m my own harshest critic and I know when I’m not playing my best football and I know when I need to improve.
“Definitely last season was a time for me to reflect on. I’ve had the time off in the summer and a long pre-season, so I feel a lot more ready this season.
“I think it’s obviously difficult when you lose. We don’t like to lose and I think that’s just the same for everyone as an individual.
“When you are losing games and you’re not picking points, it’s difficult to enjoy yourself on the pitch.
“Hopefully we can start the season off a lot better than that but we have to use last season as fuel to improve and to prove that we’re better players than what we showed last year.”
