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 the self-appointed Special One 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.
Success brings a fear factor that saw United throw opponents off kilter during Ferguson's reign.
Rashford was speaking in the changing rooms of childhood club Fletcher Moss Rangers in south Manchester, where he first tasted success and returned to hand out kits as part of the McDonald's grassroots football programme.
He was greeted by hundreds, including many clad in the blue of Manchester City.
Rashford's pride in representing the community at United is clear. There is a tradition of home-grown talent at Old Trafford that means a youth product has been in the squad for every game since 1937.
Rashford knows what it means to follow in such footsteps at a club that teaches players about accountability and responsibility, meaning less than two years ago he was still getting the tram to Old Trafford with fans.
