Marcus Rashford has been subject to media controversy this week. Following his two goals for England, pundits aplenty have been calling for the Manchester United man to leave Old Trafford this summer.
This always happens during the international break. He scores, then fans suddenly feel the urge to blame Jose Mourinho for some reason… Yes, the same Mourinho whom has given him starts galore during his two-year stint at the Theatre of Dreams.
Manchester United’s official Twitter account often posts some questionable and cringe-worthy tweets, but they absolutely nailed it with this beauty today…

Yes, since his debut over two years ago now, Rashford has played in more United games than any other player. Not bad for someone who should leave United due to a lack of playing time, eh?
I just don’t get it. During his press conference, Mourinho was well within his rights to hit back at the media. As he correctly pointed out, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Dominic Solanke et al aren’t playing week-in-week-out, yet their managers aren’t being criticised every week in the media? Talk about unfair.
At the end of the day, United sell stories, United generate clicks, United, essentially, keep the sports journalists in this country in a job. It’s just unfair sometimes though. We all know Rashford isn’t going anywhere.
