Erik ten Hag to Address Marcus Rashford Situation Following Manchester United Absence

Marcus Rashford has potentially angered Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag after traveling to Belfast midweek and claiming to be ill.

Erik ten Hag, the Manchester United manager, reiterated that he will address the situation with Marcus Rashford, who missed the FA Cup fourth-round victory against Newport County, citing illness.

Rashford was seen in Belfast during the week and captured on film in the Northern Ireland capital one evening. Manchester United clarified that the footage was from Wednesday night, which was a day off for the players on Thursday.

Speculation suggests that Rashford was socializing on Thursday night before reporting ill on Friday, a day scheduled for training. Rashford did not participate in training on Friday or Saturday.

When questioned about Rashford’s absence, Ten Hag responded, “In what sense? So he reported ill, for the rest, it’s an internal matter, I deal with it.

As I said, it’s an internal matter. For you, it raises more questions than answers, but not for me. It’s an internal matter, I will deal with it.”
Regarding whether this reflects the “no-good culture” inherited by Ten Hag, he stated, “I don’t go in this case.

I’ve talked before about it. I think we played a good game, and now we move on. We will deal with it; I will deal with it.”
When it was suggested that it would be unacceptable for Rashford to have lied, Ten Hag added, “Maybe more questions about the game.”

Newport rallied from being 2-0 down to equalize through Will Evans in the 47th minute at Rodney Parade. Antony scored his first United goal since April, and Rasmus Hojlund secured a late victory
.
In the fifth round, Manchester United will face either Nottingham Forest or Bristol City, pending their replay next week.

Ten Hag commented, “The first 35 minutes were very dominant on our side. We didn’t give the opponent any chance; it should be three or four or 5-0 up.

Out of nothing, they scored a goal, and straight after half-time, we have to be critical of bad defending transition, bringing the cross in, poor defending from the cross, and then it’s 2-2, so they turn it around.

But then you see how resilient we are; we stayed calm and went back to our game, scored the third goal, and by the end, the fourth goal, so job done.”
