Recent reports from the British media reveal a concerning incident involving Manchester United’s star player, Marcus Rashford.
It’s been disclosed that Rashford embarked on a lengthy drinking spree in Belfast, spanning over 12 hours, just before he called in sick for Manchester United training last week.
Acknowledging his actions, Rashford met with manager Erik ten Hag on Monday night for crisis talks, admitting responsibility amidst mounting worries at the club regarding his off-field behavior.
Following his reported illness on Friday, which coincided with his time in Belfast, Rashford was absent during United’s FA Cup match against Newport.
While the club didn’t disclose the specifics of the disciplinary action taken, it’s been reported that Rashford faced a hefty fine and was excluded from the Newport fixture.
According to witnesses, Rashford indulged in a prolonged tequila binge during his time in Belfast, necessitating assistance to retire after passing out around 3 am.
Additionally, a waitress disclosed that Rashford had no intention of attending training on Friday, suggesting a premeditated decision to skip.
Returning to Manchester via private jet early Friday morning, Rashford attended a meeting at United’s training HQ on Monday alongside his brother and agent.
Concerns regarding Rashford’s behavior have escalated, especially given his previous late-night escapade after a defeat in October.
Despite the internal disciplinary measures, Rashford is back in training and poised for selection for United’s upcoming match against Wolves.
However, there’s growing concern about Rashford’s form and demeanor this season, with speculation rife about underlying issues affecting his performance.
