Manchester United Conclude Disciplinary Issue with Marcus Rashford

Manchester United have confirmed that forward Marcus Rashford has taken accountability for his recent actions, following reports of his presence in Northern Ireland nightspots on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The England international, who missed training at United on Friday due to illness, was absent from Sunday’s FA Cup victory over Newport.

In an official statement, the club stated: “This matter has been addressed internally as a disciplinary issue, which has now been resolved.” Rashford has since returned to training and is expected to be available for selection in United’s upcoming Premier League clash against Wolves on Thursday

Manager Erik ten Hag addressed the situation, stating, “He reported ill. The rest is an internal matter and I will deal with that.” Rashford resumed training at Carrington on Monday, accompanied by his brother Dwaine, who is part of his representative team.

This incident is not Rashford’s first brush with disciplinary matters this season. He was previously dropped from the starting lineup for the Carabao Cup defeat against Newcastle in November, following his presence at a Manchester nightclub shortly after a disappointing defeat to Manchester City. Additionally, Rashford faced consequences last season when he arrived late for a team meeting, resulting in a bench role against Wolves, where he later scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute.

Despite his off-field challenges, Rashford’s goal-scoring form has been subdued this season, with only four goals compared to his impressive tally of 30 in the previous campaign.
