Rashford Dedicated To United

Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford has denied that he has been sulking. Rumours have swirled about the 24-year-old in recent months, even leading to then Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer to publicly criticise Rashford for spending too much time on his charity work and not concentrating on his football. The arrival of Ralf Rangnick has increased the rumoured discontent as stories are passed on that a number of players are unhappy with the new manager's training methods, with Rangnick even admitting that some players want to leave the club in January. Rashford has posted on social media: "We've all been disappointed with recent performances and we've been as disappointed with the news coverage questioning our commitment to not only the manager and the coaching staff but the club. I have endless respect for both and I'm looking forward to bettering my game under the staff at Manchester United. I'm not sulking, I'm not unhappy, am I disappointed in some of my recent performances? Of course I am. I'm my own biggest critic. It's been a tough start but I'm determined to prove my worth. My dedication and desire to be here should never be in question. I love this club." Fellow United player Fred has left the club's fans disappointed after he also committed himself to the Red Devils.
