Steve McClaren said he "hated" Rashfords attitude before Man Utd appointment

Manchester United's new assistant manager Steve McClaren once ripped into Marcus Rashford's attitude at Old Trafford.

'The wolly with the brolly' will be part of Erik ten Hag's coaching staff at United – with the pair already working alongside each other at FC Twente. However, ahead of pre-season, the new coaching staff will already have their eyes on certain players.

That includes Rashford – who McClaren ripped into when appearing on talkSPORT earlier this year. The former England boss was unimpressed with the 24-year-olds attitude during the Red Devils' narrow 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup.

McClaren said: “I hate that attitude in a player.”

“Body language is so, so important and that was the criticism of United players in the last few weeks, but Rashford has probably had this problem throughout his career in terms of questioning his attitude.

“He gets deterred too easily and doesn't fight through bad moments. He doesn't stay in the game. If he's not having a good game, he's not having a good game.”

He added: “If he's not having a good first half, he'll never have a good second half. I just look at him and think that boy needs help, off the field and through the manager.”

Rashford struggled for form last season – and he only notched five times in all competitions in 32 outings for United.
