Marcus Rashford: Man United players ‘never call each other out’
Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad won't call each other out
Marcus Rashford has admitted the Manchester United players “never call each out” but need some real talk in the dressing room after Wednesday night’s 2-0 loss to Manchester City.
The Red Devils were looking to restore some positivity around Manchester United after a humiliating 4-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester United acquitted themselves well in the first half and managed to register four shots on goal as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s five-man defence kept the defending champions at bay.
However, Portugal international Bernardo Silva managed to squeeze a finish past David De Gea at his near post in the 54th minute before Leroy Sane fired past the Manchester United captain 12 minutes later.
Manchester United have lost eight of their last 10 games in all competitions to raise serious questions about their current lull under Solskjaer.
The Red Devils have three days to dust themselves down before fourth-placed Chelsea FC visit Old Trafford for a top-six clash on Sunday.
Manchester United striker Rashford made an alarming admission about the Red Devils squad after their 2-0 loss to Manchester City.
“We didn’t play like Manchester United,” Rashford told Sky Sports.
“It’s not right. The bare minimum is to work hard and give all for the badge, the supporters, the club and yourself.
“It has been a tough road to get to where we are, to get there and not be putting up the same performances as we were in January is disappointing.
“We know what’s been going wrong, it’s mentality and willingness to run for your team. Forget the league and top four, you don’t lose this game.”
Manchester United have only managed to finish in the top four in two of the last five seasons.
The Red Devils are in sixth place and three points adrift of Chelsea FC.
