Marcus Rashford risked the wrath of Manchester United fans after hosting a birthday party after Man United’s 3-0 loss to Man City last month.
Rashford had a poor game, as the entire team, but would go on to party and booze.
Roy Keane who is usually hard on this generation of players, has surprisingly come to the defence of Marcus Rashford.
Speaking on the Stick to Football podcast, he said: “I wouldn’t be too harsh on him [Marcus Rashford], forget that it was his birthday, if people want to go out you try to pick and choose the right place, but he’s a young lad and doesn’t look like he’s a big drinker.
“I’ve had some of my best drinking sessions after a defeat – win or lose you hit the booze – so was it smart to go into the middle of Manchester after you’ve just got beaten? No.
“But he’s human and I guarantee that he wasn’t drinking 10-15 pints and if fans want to get upset, they’ll get upset anyways. I’ve often gone out, win or lose, you have a session.
“Sometimes the best time to have a session is when you’ve been beaten, but maybe not in a club in the middle of Manchester, you can still find a little sneaky pub somewhere.”
