Manchester United are getting winning feeling back - Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford knows there is a "long way'' to go until Manchester United can match Sir Alex Ferguson's all-conquering sides -- but believes Jose Mourinho's men are on track to become relentless winners.

Having failed to get anywhere near the heights scaled before the Scot's retirement in 2013, United drafted in Mourinho last year.

Mourinho oversaw a disappointing sixth-place finish in his first season at Old Trafford, but followed Louis van Gaal's FA Cup triumph with Europa League, EFL Cup and Community Shield glory.

That winning mentality is infectious and Rashford is hungry for more, counting every trophy while trying to enjoy a whirlwind rise that started less than 21 months ago.

"There's so many different incidents that can easily pass you by and you forget about,'' the 20-year-old told Press Association Sport. "As an example, as soon as you win a trophy, in my mind straightaway you're thinking about winning the next trophy. That's when you can miss the moment of enjoying winning that trophy. It's difficult.

"We went through that second year and won three trophies in the year, so we was winning things and winning things and it became normal for us.

"That's what United has always been about, so it is important for us to try and get that feeling back to Old Trafford of winning. It's definitely coming back, but where they were to where we are now, we've still got a long way to go because they were consecutively winning.

"Consecutively winning is different to winning one thing or winning two things. It's more difficult because everybody wants to beat you.''

Success brings a fear factor that saw United throw opponents off kilter during Ferguson's reign and Rashford insists the club haven't lost that.

"I think that's still there,'' he said. "But teams are coming to have a go and we want to get rid of that.

"We want to make it the fortress that it was before. I think we're on a path back to doing that. We've got the right manager, we've have the right staff, so it's just about producing now on the field.''
