United Briefing featuring Marcus Rashford

United Briefing: Rashford questions required

Wednesday 21 April 2021 08:00

After asking you to submit questions for Paul Pogba this week, we're now inviting you to do the same for Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United's popular no.10 will follow his team-mates Pogba, Alex Telles, Fred and Luke Shaw in being interviewed by us on behalf of our supporters.

You might like to ask Marcus about his five years as a first-team player or the recent feats he has achieved as a goalscorer. For example, his 20th strike of the season - in this month's 3-1 win over Tottenham - made him the first Red to reach that total in back-to-back campaigns since Wayne Rooney did it in 2008/09 and 2009/10.
Budding young footballers could quiz Rashford on his skills and tricks, and the training techniques he uses to hone them, after it was revealed that he has made more nutmegs than any other player in Europe's top five leagues this season - including the likes of Neymar, Jadon Sancho and Leroy Sane.

The England international also continues to make his mark off the pitch, in the community, with his campaigning to combat food poverty and launch of a scheme to distribute reading books to disadvantaged children.

For your chance to influence our interview with Marcus, submit your question through our online form. We'll then select the best ones to put to him when he sits down in our studio very soon.


The players are expected to be going through their paces at the Aon Training Complex as the countdown to the long-awaited return to Elland Road continues. Leeds are in good form and drew 1-1 with Liverpool on home turf on Monday night.

There are two matches in the Premier League as Tottenham face Southampton and Manchester City travel to Aston Villa. The Blues will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table after we reduced the gap to eight points with victory over Burnley.

It is the anniversary of our 3-2 defeat of Juventus that sealed a place in the 1999 Champions League final during the Treble term, 22 years ago.

Sir Alex's Reds completed one of our most famous comebacks on this day in 1999.


The club released two official statements in the evening. The first one announced that Ed Woodward will leave his role as United's executive vice-chairman at the end of 2021; the second one revealed that the Reds will not participate in the European Super League.

Eric Bailly revealed he was back in training after testing positive for COVID-19 whilst on international duty.
