Marcus Rashford tells Ten Hag sorry for ‘unacceptable’ night out after City loss

Marcus Rashford has told Erik ten Hag he is sorry after he was out celebrating his birthday just hours after Manchester United were dismantled by bitter rivals Manchester City.

City put United to the sword on their own turf, and Rashford was then spotted attending an event at Manchester’s Chinawhite to celebrate his 26th birthday, which was on Tuesday. "I am aware of it, I spoke with him about it,” Ten Hag said ahead of United's clash with Fulham.

“It is unacceptable. I told him, he apologised and that is it. It is an internal matter.”

It's not the first time Rashford has been in trouble with Ten Hag – last season he was dropped for a Premier League fixture with Wolves due to rocking up late to training.

Ten Hag added: "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 [mean] he is not fitting in. 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."
