Marcus Rashford reportedly is facing challenges regaining the support of his Manchester United teammates. Recently, he drew criticism for missing training after allegedly indulging in a 12-hour drinking session in Belfast.
His on-field performance has also been under scrutiny, with only four goals in his last 20 Premier League matches. This has raised doubts about his role as a regular starter in Erik ten Hag’s team.
Additionally, his off-field conduct has fueled these doubts. Rashford missed training after a night out and has apologized for his actions.
This is not the first time he has been involved in off-field incidents, and it is reported that he has lost the trust of his teammates as a result. Some players have expressed frustration and feel that Rashford’s behavior has prompted others to be sold.
The 26-year-old is the only remaining player from his previous friendship group at United, with some reportedly departing due to concern about their influence on him. Rashford is said to present a ‘miserable figure’ and has become distant from the team, with his moodiness in training and games causing frustration.
It is expected that he will return to training soon, and both Ten Hag and his teammates will hope that this episode will motivate him to perform better in the upcoming matches. As the end of the season approaches, no player is exempt from scrutiny by the management, and Rashford will have to prove his value to stay with the team.
