“Unacceptable” were Marcus Rashford’s birthday celebrations hours after Manchester United lost 3-0 to Manchester City last weekend, according to boss Erik ten Hag.
The English player Rashford, who turned 26 on Tuesday, had a planned party at a fancy Manchester nightclub on Sunday, which the United manager did not like.
“That’s not okay. I informed him. “He said sorry, and that was it,” Ten Hag told reporters on Friday.
“He makes a mistake, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t fit in.” He makes one mistake on the pitch, but he also does something wrong off the pitch. “I’m sure he’s doing everything he can to help the team, do his job, and help us win,” he said.
The Dutch manager said Rashford is ready for Saturday’s game at Fulham because the problem has been solved within the team.
United are stuck in eighth place in the Premier League with 15 points from 10 games. They are 11 points behind the leaders, Tottenham Hotspur. They are 14th with 12 points.
