Manchester United striker, Marcus Rashford, has aired out that his interest had always been to join Manchester United right from childhood and not Liverpool.
“I was playing for my old Sunday League team, Fletcher Moss, we won a tournament and there were loads of different scouts there.
“For a lot of us, United was the one. Everyone grew up a United fan and United and Fletcher Moss always had a good relationship, players in the past had made that switch, so United was natural.
“When I was about five, six years old, we started at The Cliff development centre. When you make the step over to this building, you’re nine, 10 years old and it’s different from what you’re used to – just look at the size of it.
“You don’t go to 11-a-side until you’re 12 years old. Before then you’re playing on tight pitches, which is good because it develops your skills,” he says, after laughing at the memory of one of his first games here (a 15-6 win over Bradford).
“So from that corner to that corner, you’re learning different ways to play the game.
“It’s really good; you can see the U16s and the U18s train – you see the pathway,” he said.
