Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford penned down a strong note targeting the criticism of him and the people who are doubting his commitment to the Red Devils. After having an excellent last season with 30 goals, the 26-year-old is currently going through a rough patch with only five goals to his name in the ongoing season.

In his long article published on The Player’s Tribune website, he wrote, "I can take any criticism. I can take any headline. From podcasts, social media, and the papers. I can take it. But if you start questioning my commitment to this club and my love for football and bringing my family into it, then I’d simply ask you to have a bit more community."

His lean patch continued in their last game against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup as well as he looked completely out of touch in Man United’s 1-0 victory. The only goal was scored by Brazil mid-fielder Casemiro.

Defending on his commitment to the Man United, he wrote, “Listen, I’m not a perfect person. When I make a mistake, I’ll be the first one to put my hand up and say that I need to do better. But if you ever question my commitment to Man United, that’s when I have to speak up. Its like somebody questioning my entire identity, and everything I stand for as a man. I grew up here. I have played for this club since I was a boy. My family turned down life-changing money when I was a kid so I could wear this badge.

Rashford was seen in nightclub before skipping practice

Earlier, it was reported that Marcus Rashford had a deteriorated relationship with the manager of Manchester United Eric Ten Hag after the reports came out that the England forward was seen going to a Belfast nightclub before missing out on the practice session due to illness.

Since then, the relationship with the manager has worsened for Rashford and they are hardly having any conversation with each other. This could also be the reason for the criticism he is facing of the commitment to the club.
