BREAKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, Wayne Rooney has “slammed” Marcus Rashford for his “woeful” performance in Manchester United’s game against Everton. He said ” He should be ashamed of himself, even with him playing in his preferred position he was still less effective. It’s either he wakes up or leave. United have garnacho”. He also described Rashford’s performance as “disappointing”, and called for him to “wake up” and start performing to his potential. Rashford has been in “poor form” this season, and Rooney believes that he needs to “turn things around” if he is to get his career back on track.


Wayne Rooney, Manchester United’s top goalscorer, has delivered a stark message to Marcus Rashford, emphasizing his lack of sympathy for the forward and questioning his leadership qualities and body language on the field.

Rooney, who played alongside Rashford during their time at Old Trafford, shared his thoughts as a pundit for TNT Sports ahead of the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Everton, two of his former clubs.

Rashford, aged 26, has faced intense scrutiny this season due to his diminished goalscoring output and off-field issues, drawing criticism from manager Erik ten Hag.

Rooney, renowned for scoring 253 goals for Manchester United in 559 appearances, urged Rashford to enhance his consistency and assume greater responsibility as a senior member of the squad.

Asked about his sympathy for Rashford’s pressure, Rooney responded bluntly, expressing little empathy due to Rashford’s privileged position at Manchester United.

“He’s in a privileged position where he’s playing for Manchester United,” Rooney remarked. “I’ve said before, he’s the one player I really believed could go and get my goalscoring record, and I hope he does because he’s a Manchester lad, but he needs to hit some consistency. Of course, he’s not having the best of seasons but he needs to find some form and consistency and become a leader of this team.”

Rooney highlighted Rashford’s meager tally of eight Premier League goals this season and frequent criticisms of his performances. Rashford has been linked with a potential exit from Manchester United at the end of the season, with Paris Saint-Germain among his reported suitors.

Regarding Rashford’s leadership qualities, Rooney expressed skepticism, stating, “I don’t think Marcus is that type of player, I don’t think he’s a leader, and sometimes his body language doesn’t look the best from that point of view. For me, I look at the likes of Casemiro, Raphael Varane, Bruno Fernandes as captain. They’re players who should be getting that out of Marcus because sometimes you need your teammates to get more out of you as well.”
