Marcus Rashford ill and missing Man United training after being spotted clubbing in Belfast



| Last Updated:


Manchester United announced that Marcus Rashford did not train on Friday morning after he was spotted clubbing in Belfast on Thursday.

Manchester United are preparing to face Newport County on Sunday evening in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Erik ten Hag’s men have already been knocked out of the Champions League and Carabao Cup so far this season and sit eighth in the Premier League, making the FA Cup the last chance United have this season of winning any trophies.

Speaking on Friday afternoon, Erik ten Hag confirmed that both Marcus Rashford and Jonny Evans are doubts for the fixture after they did not train on Friday due to illness.

“It’s a strong side, and we still have some injuries, like [Victor] Lindelof and [Tyrell] Malacia,” the manager told club media.

“This morning, Rashford was ill, and Evans was ill. So we have to see how they recover, but we have, for the rest, players returning, like Martinez, like Shaw, like Maguire, like Casemiro, which is a good thing.”

However, videos have since surfaced online that seem to show Marcus Rashford out in Belfast on Thursday evening after visiting his friend and ex-United defender Roshaun Williams, who now plays for NIFL Premiership side Larne.

Manchester United believe the videos of Marcus Rashford were instead taken on Wednesday night before a day off on Thursday. According to the Daily Mail, there is “no issue”.
