United’s boss revealed he has spoken with Rashford and has received an apology.
Man United manager has hit out on Marcus Rashford for his unacceptable behaviour after his side’s defeat. The midfielder was part of his birthday celebrations on the night when Man City defeated Man United at Old Trafford.
Rashford was spotted at Chinawhite nightclub just a few hours after the game at Old Trafford. This defeat already put pressure on Erik ten Hag and his side.
Meanwhile, this event was pre-planned. Rashord turned 26 and had a party at the club. United’s boss revealed he has spoken with the player about the incident and has received an apology.
“Yes I am aware of it, I spoke with him about it,” Ten Hag said.
“It is unacceptable. I told him, he apologised and that is it. It is an internal matter.”
Ten Hag insisted that Rashford was not dropped for the midweek Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle and was instead rested as the squad was rotated.
Erik ten Hag hit back at the suggestion that this latest episode was proof that Rashford was not responding to the manager’s demands.
“As I say, it is an internal matter,” Ten Hag continued.
“He is fitting in. He is very motivated to put things right. I know how much effort he is putting in. He makes a mistake but that doesn’t say he is not fitting in.
“He is totally with us. He makes one mistake but also off the pitch what he is doing, how he lives, I am sure he is doing everything right to help the team and to perform and let us win.”
