Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford, has revealed that he struggled last season due to mental issues.

The Englishman was in a better frame of mind for his historic 100th goal for Manchester United, which helped Erik ten Hag’s team defeat West Ham.

Rashford endured a difficult time last season when he returned to action following shoulder surgery, he discovered a divided United dressing room, as a result, his confidence suffered.

However, he acknowledged that being in a better frame of mind is helping him after scoring his seventh goal of the year to become the first United player to reach a century since Wayne Rooney in 2009.

‘To be honest, there is a completely different energy around the whole club, the training ground and that puts me in a better head space — I feel really motivated now,” said the English forward.

“I struggled at times last season — more mental things, not my own performance. It was other things off the pitch. Too often last season I wasn’t in the right head space.

“I need to be scoring a few more headers. For me, it is about getting in the areas and goals will come.”

Gary Neville commented on Rashford’s openness about his struggles with his mental health in a discussion with Skysports.

“It was stark to hear Rashford say he wasn’t in the right headspace going into a match,” he said.

“There is no doubt there was too much being put in his head off the pitch. Too much. Sometimes you have to simplify your life.”
