Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has been blasted by Paul Ince after his latest displays for the club, and been told that he’s getting too big for his boots.
Jose Mourinho made the point after the game that he was disappointed with many of his players, and for the last few games, there have been chances created that the forwards haven’t put away – and against Leicester City, Mourinho even made it clear he thought Rashford should have gone down and won a penalty – something he didn’t do.
While Rashford isn’t the only player who could do with taking a look at himself, Ince thinks that the forward – while still a fan favourite and full of potential – is someone who has turned to showboating – and he needs to be helping the other players instead.
Paul Ince spoke with Paddy Power, and said: “No disrespect to Bristol City at all – but Man United should be beating them.
“They also don’t have the excuse that they fielded a weaker side. They were playing some top, top players who just weren’t good enough.
“I kept seeing Marcus Rashford attempt little flicks in the middle of the park, and it seems to me as though he has gotten ahead of himself.
“He’s a fantastically talented player – but right then, against Bristol who really wanted the win, wasn’t the time.
“He should’ve been focused on doing absolutely anything he could to help the team, rather than showboating.
“To me, it looked as though the home side and their players just wanted it more.
“The United lads seemed as though they’d checked out, or as though they weren’t interested. And to me that’s just completely disrespectful.
“It’s still a trophy – it’s still silverware which is the most important thing in football. Not to mention the fact that they are the holders of it.”
