Erik ten Hag warns Rashford over ‘unacceptable’ behaviour
Ten Hag said: “Yes I am aware of it, I spoke with him about it. It is unacceptable. I told them, he apologised, and that is it. It is an internal matter.”
When asked whether everything is fine with Rashford, he repeated: “As I say, It is an internal matter.
“He is fitting in. He is very motivated to put things right. I know how much effort he is putting in. He makes a mistake, but that doesn’t say he is not fitting in.
“Rashford is totally with us. He makes one mistake but also off the pitch what he is doing, how he lives, I am sure he is doing everything right to help the team and to perform and let us win.”
