Arsenal legend Wright sends message to Rashford over confrontation with Man Utd fan

Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has urged Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford to stand his ground and not to feel sorry for confronting an angry Red Devils fan.

Rashford had confronted a Man United fan following their Champions League exit at the hand of Atletico Madrid this week.

Video footage shows the England international reacting to one fan and turning to face the crowd before being ushered back towards the team bus by security.

But Wright has now supported Rashford after the forward was taunted by a group of supporters, insisting that the 23-year-old has nothing to apologise for.

In a video on his Twitter account, 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 apologizing for him, who the f*ck is apologizing 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.”

He added: “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.”

Rashford told to join PSG

Rangers legend, Ally McCoist, has urged Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford to join Paris Saint-Germain in the upcoming summer transfer window.

McCoist believes PSG would be a ‘good move’ for Rashford as Man United are ‘all over the place’.

Rashford, whose current contract will expire in the summer of 2023, is said to be considering his future at Old Trafford due to a lack of game-time so far this season.

The England international has only started nine of Man United’s 28 Premier League games this term and is believed to be open to a move.

“I would [make that move],” McCoist told talkSPORT.

“He’s got to look at himself. Why is he not in the team? It suggests he’s not doing enough for Ralf Rangnick for him to put him in the side.

“That said, you look at the club, you look at the surroundings, Manchester United are all over the place just now…

“If I’m Marcus Rashford, I have got to start thinking about myself. How’s he going to get back in that England squad?

“In a fresh challenge, somewhere like PSG. I have got that down as a good move.”
