“At Manchester United, you have to manage yourself” is the direct message that Erik ten Hag gives Marcus Rashford following a 12-hour binge. Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has discussed the circumstances surrounding Marcus Rashford and emphasized the need for his players to maintain discipline both on and off the field. The England international got into trouble after photos from a nightclub surfaced.
Last Wednesday night, the 26-year-old went to a nightclub in Belfast, and he departed early on Thursday morning. Then, in the lead-up to the FA Cup match against Newport County on Sunday, he reported unwell to training.

According to reports, Rashford’s visit to the nightclub and his sick call at training resulted in a £650,000 punishment, equivalent to two weeks’ pay. Additionally, Manchester United said in a statement that the player has accepted responsibility for his acts and that the internal disciplinary case has been closed.
Ten Hag has encouraged his players to maintain discipline ahead of Thursday, February 1st’s Premier League match between Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux. Fabrizio Romano paraphrased the Dutchman as saying:
“I don’t have to teach players anything here at Manchester United. At Manchester United, you have to manage yourself”. The gamer must be aware of what is right and wrong. Playing football at the highest level requires a specific manner of living. All the time.
This season, Rashford has not performed well on the field after an incredible season in which he scored thirty goals in all competitions. In 26 games this season, the attacker has only managed four goals while dishing out six assists.
Meanwhile, Callum Wilson of Newcastle United is a striker, and former Manchester United player Louis Saha has encouraged his old team to go for him before the transfer deadline. Chelsea is apparently interested in signing the Englishman, and the Magpies are supposedly ready to let him go for £18 million.
The former France striker asserted that Wilson, a tried-and-true Premier League striker, would be a valuable addition to the Red Devils.
