Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has insisted that he “does not bully” over the latest results and achievements and has promised to prove his worth to the club he loves.
United have won just five of their last 14 Premier League matches in a terrible victory that stretches back to September. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lost his job in November as a result, while the team has also struggled to impress under the new interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
Rashford himself has not yet rediscovered his best form since returning to action from this summer’s shoulder surgery and has not scored in any competition since October.
The frustration of the fans in recent weeks has turned on the players. With reports of low morale and disillusioned players, Fred has already publicly responded by insisting that some of the things said are not true. Rashford, after being criticized for his public silence, has also now spoken out.
“I read something earlier that said I had been silent about [Twitter] but what can I say that will do this better than show you all on the pitch? ” he wrote on social media.
“We have been disappointed with the recent performances and we have been equally disappointed with the news coverage that questions our commitment not only to the manager and the coaching staff but to the club.
“I have infinite respect for both and I look forward to improving my game under the staff of Manchester United. I’m not bullshit, I’m not unhappy, am I disappointed in some of my recent appearances? Of course I am. I’m my own greatest critic.
“It has been a tough start but I am determined to prove my worth. My commitment and desire to be here should never have been questioned. I love this club.”
United are next in action on Monday night when they host Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup.
