Marcus Rashford's message to the fans
Marcus Rashford has admitted that Manchester United’s performance in the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur was ‘just not good enough’.
Our no.10 took to Twitter after the final whistle at Old Trafford to apologise for the Reds’ display, which leaves us 16th in the Premier League table going into the two-week-long international break – with one win from our three matches played so far in 2020/21.
“First and foremost I’m a United fan,” wrote Marcus on his personal account.
“This is my club. I’m so proud to wear this shirt, but there are no excuses, it’s just not good enough and to every single fan around the world that tuned in today I’m so sorry.
“You deserve so much better than that.”
Rashford joined team-mates Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay in fronting up after the loss, which is a joint-record reverse for United in the Premier League era and only the second time we have conceded six goals at home.
Like his fellow Reds, Marcus promised an improvement on the pitch when the squad return from their duties with their respective countries.
Our next league game is a visit to Newcastle on Saturday 17 October, while the Champions League campaign kicks off the following Tuesday with a trip to the Parc des Princes to take on Paris Saint-Germain.
“I would have stayed away from social media tonight but you deserve to hear from me during the highs and the lows, there is no hiding,” continued Rashford.
“I feel horrible but I promise you we will do better.”
