Rashford's message to the United fans

Saturday 16 October 2021 19:33

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has posted a message to our fans following Saturday’s 4-2 defeat to Leicester City.

The Academy graduate was named in the squad for the first time this season, after missing the start of the campaign while recovering from shoulder surgery. 

Marcus entered the action as a second-half substitute and quickly scored his first goal of 2021/22, latching onto a pass from Victor Lindelof to calmly finish past Kasper Schmeichel.

Watch what happened in Saturday’s match at the King Power Stadium…

Rashford’s goal made it 2-2 at the King Power Stadium, but unfortunately the game slipped away from United and the Reds suffered a 4-2 loss in the Premier League. 

Taking to Twitter following the final whistle, Rashford admitted he was pleased to return but ultimately frustrated by a difficult defeat in the Midlands.  

“Not the result we wanted on my return,” wrote our homegrown hero. 

“Happy to get the goal but the performance as a whole was just not good enough today. It felt great to be back but we have to rebound from this. 

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the scoresheet so all eyes are now on Wednesday.”

United’s next match is against Atalanta in the Champions League in midweek.
