DEVASTATING NEWS: reported by Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United important star player in the squad is a doubt for FA Cup encounter with Newport on Sunday after sustaining a hamstring injury in training yesterday.

Just 36 hours after the Manchester United team believes he visited a nightclub in Belfast, Marcus Rashford missed training on Friday due to illness.


Man Utd, according to The Daily Mail, is reportedly unconcerned about a video circulating showing Rashford entering an establishment, believing it was filmed on Wednesday and occurred before a scheduled day off. While the club does not criticize the academy product, questions about the 26-year-old’s dedication to the cause arise, especially given his recent challenging season.

Rashford faced severe criticism for a perceived lack of work ethic during a Premier League match against Newcastle in early December, contributing to a 1-0 defeat. His overall performance this season has been disappointing, managing only four goals in 26 matches across various competitions and providing six assists. A stark contrast to his standout performances in the previous Premier League season post-World Cup.

Despite his struggles, Rashford remains a valuable asset for Man Utd, boasting an Estimated Transfer Value (ETV) of €77 million and a contract running until 2028—a deal he signed in the summer, contributing to the growth of his ETV. His importance to the squad has further elevated with news of Anthony Martial’s injury, sidelining the Frenchman for up to 10 weeks.

Currently second in line for the No.9 role behind Rasmus Hojlund, Rashford’s versatility as a winger might see him utilized as a center-forward, especially with no new arrivals in that position this month, as confirmed by manager Ten Hag. However, Rashford’s availability for the upcoming FA Cup clash with Newport on Sunday is in doubt due to illness.
