Marcus Rashford has made more starts for Manchester United this season than any other player at the club, but the 23-year-old insists he is not in danger of burning out and expects to get more playing time for the club.
The United forward has made 44 appearances in all competitions, matching his total from last season, and the Red Devil still have nine league matches, as well as FA Cup and Europa League matches, to play.
“I just focus on the next game and that’s how I deal with it,” Rashford said.
“I know my body and I know what I can do physically and that’s it. I take one game at a time and it’s the life of a footballer.
“We can rest when we retire and for now I want to play as much as I can. I recover from games quite well and from injuries I have no doubts, no worries.”
United have failed to win a trophy since winning the Europa League in 2017 under Jose Mourinho. They have little chance of winning the Premier League this season, with Manchester City leading by 14 points.
They do, however, fly to AC Milan for the return leg of their Europa League last round of 16 later on Thursday, following a 1-1 draw at home, and face Leicester City in the FA Cup last eight on Sunday.
Rashford said that winning a trophy is United’s top priority.
“That’s the aim when we, unfortunately, got kicked out of the Champions League, the focus was to win the Europa League,” he said.
“Anything less than that and I know the team, manager, staff aren’t going to be happy with that. We’re going to do our best to win this competition. We need to start winning trophies.”
