Marcus Rashford hits back at claims of a divided Manchester United dressing room


 

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has taken to social media to hit back at allegations of a fractured dressing room at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils clung to a 1-0 lead against 10-man Brighton, before eventually finding a second deep into stoppage time, to come away with their first win in four and lift them up into 4th place in the Premier League on Tuesday, although Ralf Rangnick's men have played more games than three of the teams around them.

But that does not mean that it is all plain sailing in the north west. Reports have repeatedly suggested that Rangnicks's bond with his squad is not as strong as it perhaps could be, and that Cristiano Ronaldo is unhappy to be working under the former Leipzig man. Claims have even circulated that the club's squad refer to their assistant manager as comedy character Ted Lasso.

Rashford hits back

Now, it appears as though Marcus Rashford has had enough.

Taking to social media, he took aim at one such claim that the dressing room is fractured, coming by way of journalist Christian Falk.

'Are we just making it up as we go along now then?', he asked, before asking the media to 'stop looking for divides' in the United squad.

It is the sort of rumour that finds fertile ground in poor performances, and so perhaps the best way to avert such claims is simply by winning games.
