Rashford receives honorary doctorate
The England international, 24, played the last 23 minutes of the recent match against Atletico Madrid but failed to make an impact as the Spanish champions won 1-0, sending the Red Devils out of C1 with a total score of 1 -2. That result made MU spend 5 years completely without titles.
This disappointing result comes before MU has a half-month long break to make room for team matches. They will only return early next month, facing Leicester. That clash at Old Trafford will be an opportunity for United to boost the race for a place in the top four and a place in the Champions League next season. Liverpool’s victory over Arsenal last night partly helped the Red Devils keep hope.
Before that, United’s squad will be given the rest of the week to be able to rest and recuperate, with a report from The Telegraph indicating that Rashford has taken advantage of this time to travel abroad to try Recharge the battery for body and soul.
As he left Old Trafford after the Atletico game, Rashford was filmed by a United fan. Rashford then spoke to a manager before walking away and gesturing with his right hand. Some social media users believe he raised one of his fingers. In this video, fans were constantly swearing at him.
Rashford posted on Twitter: ” A video can draw a thousand words, and in this case it led to incorrect information being shared on social media. Guys, for weeks I have been bullied. stalking, threatening, questioning, and last night my emotions overcame me. I’m a human being.”
“Having to read and listen to stuff about yourself every day makes you depressed. No one has criticized my performance more than myself. But what you see in this video is incomplete. I got goosebumps. from the moment I stepped foot on the field, bullying is now more than just my specialty. People are looking for a response from me. Phones are on. Of course, I should have gone. straight through and ignore it, that’s what we have to do right.”
“I wanted to be clear, I pointed with my index finger, told the person to come in front of me. I didn’t gesture with my middle finger. I was annoyed. I was frustrated. And in that moment it was silly but I still did. was a human being.”
Rashford has had a difficult season since Euro last summer, scoring just five goals for United in all competitions. Recent reports suggest he could be dropped by Gareth Southgate for England’s friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast later this month.
