Marcus Rashford Man United punishment revealed after “showdown” Erik ten Hag talks



| Last Updated:


Marcus Rashford is facing a fine of up to £650,000 after he was spotted in a Belfast nightclub and missing Manchester United training the following day.

Marcus Rashford‘s season at Manchester United has so far been one to forget for the England international, with the player underperforming compared to last season under Erik ten Hag.

Recently, he missed the club’s 4-2 win over Newport County in the FA Cup fourth round after illness, but the circumstances surrounding his illness have been heavily questioned.

It was revealed on Friday that Rashford had been out clubbing in Belfast on Thursday after visiting former United player Roshaun Williams in Ireland and called in sick to train the next day.

Although the club initially stated that Rashford had been out on Wednesday, it was soon confirmed that it was, in fact, Thursday that the player had been out, just hours before he was meant to report to training ahead of the FA Cup tie.

Speaking after the game, Ten Hag said: “He reported ill, and the rest is an internal matter.” He then refused to expand when asked why Rashford’s absence was deemed an in-house matter. “It is an internal matter. As I said, we will deal with it. I will deal with it.”

It has now been reported by The Sun that Rashford is facing a £650,000 fine, with the player meeting for “showdown” talks with Ten Hag on Monday morning.

Rashford’s brother and advisor, Dwaine Maynard, was seen arriving at Carrington on Monday separately to the player, and no doubt would have played a role in these talks – although the outcome has not yet been reported, it can be assumed that Rashford will be at least somewhat reprimanded for his actions, including the fine.
