Manchester United’s players have kept pretty quiet on social media since the defeat to Barcelona.
David de Gea’s only message was to praise the women’s team on their promotion, rather than address the loss.
It’s understandable, nobody likes losing, and useless platitudes like ‘we go again’ aren’t wanted either. Not after Champions League elimination.
Marcus Rashford has broken his silence, and tried to show that the team are trying to look ahead.
United have a big job to do to close out a top four spot, with upcoming games against Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City.

Rashford should be feeling the pain of the Barcelona loss more than most, because he came so close to changing the course of the tie.
He hit the bar after just 30 seconds when put through on goal, and that was as close as United got.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now needs to turn the team’s fortunes around and it won’t be easy.
If Rashford and co approach the upcoming games with the right attitude, then United have a chance.
