Marcus Rashford hits back at journalist's claim of dressing room divide

Even after a win, Manchester United’s players can’t escape journalists trying to create controversy in the dressing room.

BILD’s Christian Falk claimed on Twitter earlier today there was a divide between the British players at the club, and Cristiano Ronaldo.

These claims seems spurious at best, the type of gossip which is probably months old and most of all, incorrect.

Marcus Rashford was one of the players referenced in Falk’s claims, and he has hit back to rubbish them.

Rashford’s comment is the ideal way to shut these kind of claims down. While best not to give them the air time in some cases, he is perfectly entitled to stand up for himself and his teammates against such accusations.

United’s players cannot escape these type of stories, but they are right to shut them down where possible.

If Rashford had not addressed this, he could have been wrongly accused of leaking to the press.

After ESPN‘s report last week which had United’s players allegedly criticising Ralf Rangnick’s training methods, squad leaks to the media have come under the spotlight.

Gary Neville branded them ‘disgusting’ on Sky and hinted he could identify the sources if they continued, from his own connections to those in the media.

The win against Brighton should serve to bolster squad unity amid the Red Devils camp, and ahead of a crucial week with games upcoming against Leeds and Atletico Madrid, the last thing which is needed is speculation of a divided squad.

Rashford deserves credit for nipping this one in the bud.
