This week Thierry Henry announced he was quitting all social media to take a stand against online abuse. It is an admirable stance from a high profile figure.

Marcus Rashford is not minded to do the same, and explained on Twitter why he won’t be following the Frenchman’s lead.

The question came as part of a Twitter Q&A in which Rashford spent a good 30 minutes responding to his followers.

Rashford was quizzed about all types of topics including mundane questions like where he keeps his ketchup, to football matters.


His love for United came through, as he talked about how he wished he could have had the opportunity to play alongside Eric Cantona.

There was also an obligatory Jadon Sancho mention too, which Rashford was responsible for.

Rashford said his goal in the first Manchester derby was his most memorable, and explained why he had bittersweet feelings about his famous penalty against PSG.

Rashford was also asked about his favourite ever midfielders, and the one opposing player he would like to play alongside.

Rashford was also asked for his opinions on teammate Luke Shaw’s England recall, and for who he counts as Manchester United’s funniest player.

The one thing Rashford did not comment on, was his fitness and availability this coming weekend.

Rashford is nursing an ankle injury which has forced him out of England’s World Cup qualifiers.

He is questionable to be fit for United’s Premier League game at home to Brighton on Sunday.
