These snippets were then shared online and published by other websites including Goal and the MEN.

Nor Rashford has clarified the comments and says they were taken completely out of context.

Rashford’s comments show United supporters there is absolutely nothing to worry about.

We all knew that anyway, but it is good to see him come out and explain that his comments were taken completely out of context.


Rashford likely wanted to address this sooner, but decided to wait until after Sunday’s game against Wolves, so he would not provide any distractions. Now he has drawn a line under it.

Currently Rashford’s contract runs until 2023 with an option to extend to 2024. He is likely in line for a contract extension later this year, to at least match Bruno Fernandes, whose deal goes up to 2026.

Rashford also sent a message out reflecting on a crazy season, with the Premier League now complete, with United finishing in second.

He wants to play a part in United winning the Europa League final this week and is is contention to start.
