Show A Bit More Humanity – Rashford Tells Critics

GTBCO FOOD DRINL

February 29, (THEWILL) – Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has responded to recent criticism over his form and commitment, asking the media and fans to “have a bit more humanity”.

In a statement published on Thursday, the 26-year-old acknowledged he has struggled this season, scoring just 5 goals compared to 30 last campaign. However, he denied accusations that he lacks dedication to United, saying his family previously turned down “life-changing money” so he could represent the club.

Rashford admitted he is not perfect and has made mistakes, “like a lot of lads in their 20s”. Yet, he argued some coverage has crossed lines, speculating about subjects like his family, morals and tattoos. He believes some criticisms originate from his widely praised child food poverty campaign during the pandemic, which “seemed to rub certain people the wrong way”.

While taking responsibility for errors, Rashford maintained his years at United disprove any doubt over his commitment. He wants fans to know the squad has more to give, promising “the world has not seen the best of this United squad”. Rashford himself is motivated to get back to UEFA Champions League level.

In a message to supporters, he said: “If you back me, good. If you doubt me, even better.” He understands the media “game” but feels there is sometimes a different tone used towards him compared to other players. Ultimately, he insists that he plays out of a “love of the game” rather than money.

The striker ended by urging unity during a tricky season, believing the current group can restore success. But he stands by his right to defend himself while accepting constructive criticism as he tries to rediscover his best form.
