Rashford tells Man United to ‘look forward not back’ after being named Player of the Month
Marcus Rashford tells Manchester United to ‘look forward not back’ on Twitter after being named Player of the Month… while team-mate Mason Greenwood dominates the talk around the club
Marcus Rashford has told Manchester United to ‘look forward not back’ after being named the Premier League Player of the Month for January.
But despite picking up the accolade for the second time this season, talk around the club is being dominated by Rashford’s team-mate Mason Greenwood.
The 21-year-old was on Thursday cleared of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault after charges against him were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service. It came just over a year after the forward was arrested.
Man United said they will now ‘conduct their own process before determining the next steps’ over Greenwood’s future.
While United struggle what to do off the pitch, Erik ten Hag’s men are certainly firing on it.
Marcus Rashford picked up both the Premier League and Manchester United Player of the Month awards for January
Despite Rashford’s sessational run of form, talk at the club is being dominated by his team-mate Mason Greenwood
United’s in-form star Rashford celebrated his award by posting a photo of him holding both the Premier League and Manchester United Player of the Month trophies.
The caption read: ‘The last month couldn’t have gone better for me. On a personal note, it’s the first time I’ve won these awards together and hopefully not the last. Thank you to my teammates, the coaches, my family and the fans for helping me to win these awards’.
He later followed up the post with another short Tweet. ‘Now it’s time to look forward to the next group of games and not the past month! We have a lot of big games starting tomorrow,’ the red-hot striker said.
Rashford’s January saw him feature in four of United’s league games, including Bournemouth and Man City, while he scored three times, including a corker to open the scoring during their narrow defeat to league leaders Arsenal.
It is not yet clear what Man United will do with fellow United forward Greenwood and Ten Hag refused to comment on the England star’s future.
Speaking ahead of United’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday, he said: ‘I can’t add nothing. It’s… I refer to the statement of the club.’
No matter how well Rashford and United keep doing, the Greenwood saga is not one that is going to go quickly.
Rashford has scored 18 goals this season and is determined for the club to ‘look forward not back’
