Manchester United to offer Marcus Rashford counselling, taking drinking situation “seriously”



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are open to offering Marcus Rashford counselling sessions should he choose to reach out, according to reports.

Marcus Rashford has caused a huge whirlwind around Manchester United in the last week after he was spotted clubbing last Thursday in Belfast ahead of calling in sick for training on Friday morning.

Although those around Rashford stress that Rashford was actually ill on Friday, Erik ten Hag told Rashford to remain at Carrington on Sunday during United’s 4-2 win over Newport County in the FA Cup.

According to the Daily Mail, the club are willing to offer Rashford counselling in the wake of his drinking episode, where he allegedly passed out at 3am – and that United are “taking the situation very seriously”.

They are committed to helping Rashford through what is described as “another dark period” in his career.

Assistance from professionals is accessible to every player, but the decision to avail of it rests with Rashford. Reports indicate that this support is an integral component of any football club and is extended to all United players, not exclusively to Rashford.

The Mail also claim that it is something Erik ten Hag has been worried about since late 2021, and that it is the second time he has run into a clubbing issue this season.

It has been reported that former United players Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand have also reached out to Rashford to offer their support.

Marcus Rashford is due back in full training on Wednesday morning as the side prepare to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers, where Rashford is back in contention to play.
