Rashford: We have to win trophy

England striker Marcus Rashford says a top-four finish will not be enough for his club Manchester United this season - with trophies the only measure of success.

The Old Trafford club is currently in seventh place in the English Premier League, nine points off the Champions League places, after a troubled start to the season.

The Red Devils have undergone their worst start to a season for 33 years, but have two wins from their last three matches to boost hopes of being able to get a top-four place.

But 22-year-old Rashford said that would not constitute success for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, at a club where silverware is all that matters.

"Manchester United have always got to chase trophies," said Rashford.

"I think it's been 18 months (two-and-a-half years) since we won our last trophy, so it's been a while.

"If we come out of this season with top-four but without a trophy, I wouldn't be happy.

"If we manage to get some trophies and get ourselves into the top-four, then, of course, it's been a successful season.

"For me it's just about putting markers down for what we can do in the future, because we know this period is not going to change overnight, Ole's not going to get what he wants overnight.

"We have to bide our time and just be patient, as long as we keep working hard and believe in what we're doing - which I think the team do 100 per cent - then I think we will be fine."
