Marcus Rashford told not to apologise for standing up to Manchester United fans that abused him

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been told not to apologise for standing up to angry Manchester United fans that abused him after Tuesday’s Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid.

Former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright believes Rashford had every right to offer a response to those dishing out unnecessary abuse.

Wright said: “Somebody just sent me the Marcus Rashford video where he confronted fans, because the fans were digging him out and he offered one of them out.

“I don’t know who is doing it, doing this apologising for him, who the f*ck is apologising for that?

“People are so quick to say ‘oh, sorry’ and that is what gives these fans that feel that they can dig people out.

“Marcus, stand your ground, bro. You got people jumping on and saying ‘Marcus is so sorry’. Don’t be f*cking sorry for that, bro.

“Some of those fans love giving it but can’t take it. You just do your stuff, get back to where you need to be when you are playing. F*ck them fans.”
