Rashford breaks his silence with a post to fans

Wednesday 27 October 2021 22:45

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has responded to last weekend’s one-sided defeat to Liverpool, with an honest admission to supporters via social media.

The Academy graduate returned from injury earlier this month and, after scoring in successive matches against Leicester City and Atalanta, he started the big game with the Merseysiders. 

Our homegrown hero knows exactly what the fixture means to everybody associated with the club, and he has previously enjoyed success in the rivalry, but on this occasion it unfortunately did not work out. 

United suffered a painful 5-0 defeat at Old Trafford and, since then, Rashford has deliberately kept a low profile to gather his thoughts. 
Late on Wednesday evening, Marcus broke his silence to send a concise message to our supporters, telling fans that the squad is doing everything possible to turn this run of form around. 

“I can’t lie you haven’t heard from me on here because as a United fan I didn’t really know what to say after Sunday,” writes Rashy. “I was embarrassed. I am embarrassed. Our fans are everything and you didn’t deserve that. We’re working hard to try and fix this. We have to redeem ourselves.”

The squad has been working hard at Carrington this week – as our images above show - with a view to bouncing back in Saturday’s all-important match against Tottenham Hotspur in north London. Rashford hopes to be involved in the 17:30 BST kick-off, which will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK.
