Marcus Rashford Breaks Silence On Man Utd humiliation Lost From Liverpool
Marcus Rashford Breaks Silence: Following their loss at Liverpool, Marcus Rashford feels that Manchester United must “stay together” before their Europa League match against Real Betis on Thursday.
Following Manchester United’s humbling 7-0 loss at Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, Marcus Rashford has responded defiantly.
Although missing two fantastic scoring opportunities, the 25-year-old struggled to have an effect at Anfield along with the rest of his United colleagues. He nearly scored in the first half, but Alisson saved his shot, then in the second half, after running around the goalie, he struck the post.
Rashford paid the price for not taking advantage of his opportunities as Liverpool racked up their biggest-ever victory over United. On a historic day in Merseyside, Reds players Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah each scored two goals, and Roberto Firmino also found the back of the net.
United suffered their worst-ever Premier League defeat as they missed the opportunity to catch up to Arsenal and Manchester City. The team’s talisman Rashford took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to explain his team’s loss while also acknowledging they needed to “stay together”.
Tweeted Rashford: “We should try to make things right today by playing a game, I wish. We are unable to look past the outcome because it is the outcome! We cannot allow it to determine the season. We must stick together and have faith in the process.”
Prior to the encounter against Liverpool, the England star had been on fire, scoring five goals in his previous four league games. To bring his total in all competitions to 24, he also scored against Barcelona in the Europa League and Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final.
Rashford, meanwhile, won’t want to think back on this specific trip to Liverpool because United is still vying for four championships this year. The Red Devils are still in the FA Cup and Europa League, two competitions they could both win, despite the fact that it seems like a long shot. They are also still in the title race.
Ten Hag said he didn’t see the manner of the loss coming after a “good” first-half from his team because of the Red Devils’ stellar season-long form.
Marcus Rashford Breaks Silence:
Ten Hag stated on Match of the Day, “I thought we played a decent first half. “Just before halftime, an organisational error was made. It was just not us in the second half. It didn’t meet our criteria. We didn’t perform as a unit. It was not expert.” Absolutely, I am upset. Definitely. I am astonished since I have observed over the past few weeks and months that this team is tenacious and competitive.
“We had zero winning attitude in the second half. We failed to follow the strategy and failed to perform our duties. We failed to follow up, and that was quite unprofessional.”
