Rashford birthday party ‘unacceptable’ – Ten Hag



Ten Hag insists Manchester United's luck will turn

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford’s birthday party celebrations hours after the 3-0 defeat by Manchester City last weekend were “unacceptable,” manager Erik ten Hag has said.

England’s Rashford, who turned 26 on Tuesday, held a pre-planned party at an exclusive Manchester nightspot on Sunday, something that did not go down well with the United boss.

“It is unacceptable. I told him. He apologized, and that is it,” Ten Hag told a press conference on Friday.

“So he makes a mistake, but it doesn’t say he is not fitting in. He makes one mistake but is also off-the-pitch in what he is doing. I am sure he is doing everything right to help the team and to perform and let us win,” he added.

The Dutchman said Rashford is available for Saturday’s game at Fulham after the issue was dealt with internally.


United are languishing in eighth place in the Premier League with 15 points from 10 games, 11 points adrift of leaders Tottenham Hotspur. Fulham are 14th on 12 points.
