Rashford apologises for breaching Manchester United’s rules


Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has taken responsibility for his actions after reports emerged of him visiting nightspots in Northern Ireland while missing training and a match.

United stated that the matter has been dealt with internally and is now closed. Rashford returned to training and will be available for selection in the team’s upcoming Premier League match against Wolves.

Erik ten Hag, United’s boss, confirmed that Rashford had reported ill and that the issue was being handled internally. Rashford was spotted at the club’s training ground on Monday with his brother Dwaine, who is part of his representation team.

This incident is not the first time Rashford has faced discipline issues this season. He was dropped from the starting line-up for United’s Carabao Cup fourth-round defeat by Newcastle in November as a disciplinary measure after being seen celebrating his birthday in a high-end nightspot following a loss to Manchester City.

Rashford was also placed on the substitutes bench for United’s Premier League game at Wolves last season after oversleeping and being late for a team meeting.

Despite scoring 30 goals last season, Rashford has only managed to score four goals for United this season.
