Marcus Rashford faces Man United wrath after Belfast fiasco



Marcus Rashford faces Man United wrath after Belfast fiasco

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is set to face a significant financial penalty of two weeks’ salary, amounting to £650,000, after being caught partying in a nightclub in Northern Ireland on Thursday.

The Sun reported that despite Rashford reporting illness and missing training on Friday, he was spotted in a Belfast nightclub. The incident led to the player’s absence from Manchester United’s recent 4-2 victory against Newport County on Sunday.

Despite the visual evidence, the club officially attributed Rashford’s omission from the match to ‘illness.’ Manager Erik ten Hag, however, acknowledged the matter and pledged to address it internally.

During the post-match press conference following the Newport County win, Ten Hag commented on Rashford’s absence, stating, “He reported ill, for the rest it’s an internal matter, I’ll deal with it.”

The Red Devils are taking a firm stance by imposing a substantial fine on Rashford, signaling their commitment to discipline and accountability within the team.

The incident raises questions about the player’s communication with the manager regarding the nightclub visit, although Ten Hag did not confirm whether Rashford had misled him.

As the story develops, fans and football enthusiasts will be keen to see how Manchester United handles the disciplinary situation and the potential impact on Rashford’s future role in the team.
