However, in an Interview with The Players Tribune, Marcus Rashford refuted the doubts surrounding him and his loyalty towards Manchester United. Despite describing him as an introvert who ignores the outside noise, he emphasized that there are certain lines which shouldn’t be crossed when it comes to criticism.

He dismissed these critics as individuals who fail to address the situation at hand and instead focus on unrelated matters.

Rashford also talked about his loyalty towards Manchester United, saying, “When I was about 10 or 11 years old, I was getting a lot of attention, and we had all kinds of agents and clubs trying to pass things to my family. A few clubs offered us life-changing money.”
