Marcus Rashford has released a strong-worded statement in response to fan footage of him confronting supporters outside Old Trafford on Tuesday night. Rashford was caught on camera angrily responding to criticism after Manchester United’s Champions League exit against Atletico Madrid.
He wrote: “A video can paint a thousand words and in this case lead to inaccurate info being shared on social media. Guys, for weeks I’ve been heckled, threatened, questioned, and last night my emotion got the better of me. I’m a human being.
“Reading and hearing that stuff about yourself every day, it wears you down. No one is more critical of my performance than me. But what you see in this video lacks context. I had been heckled from the minute I stepped foot outside the ground, abuse not just aimed at my football.
