Ian Wright's Passionate, X-Rated Response To Marcus Rashford Confronting Manchester United Fans Has Gone Viral
| Last updated
Ian Wright has passionately backed Marcus Rashford after the Manchester United forward apologised for attempting to approach fans after defeat to Atletico Madrid. Check it out below.
United were eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday evening and Rashford was involved in a situation shortly after full-time.
The 24-year-old reacted to supporters criticising his performance and walked in their direction, before being ushered away by stewards.
Rashford took to social media with a lengthy apology, something Arsenal legend Wright wasn't happy with.
"Yo, what's up everybody? What a beautiful day," he begun.
"Listen, I've got to address this, someone just sent me the Marcus Rashford video where he confronted fans because the fans are digging him out and he offered one of them out.
"I don't know who's doing it man, who's doing this apologising for him, what the f**k's he apologising for? 'I'm so sorry,' That's what gives these fans that fuel. They think they can just dig people out. Marcus, stand your ground, bro.
"Tell them about their raasclaat self. Yes. I mean, you got these people jumping on f**king 'Oh, Marcus, he's so...' don't be f**king sorry for that bro. Some fans love giving it they can't take it man. You just do your stuff. Get back to where you need to be bro when you're playing. F**k them fans, bro."
Rashford's had a tough season on the pitch and has only scored five goals in all competitions.
He's lost his place in the United starting XI after being a key player since his breakthrough in 2016.
Fans have backed Wright's comments and agree with his stance.
One commented: "You're probably my favourite ex pro, never any bias from you and says it like it is. I agree with every word you've said."
Another said: "That went where I wasn't quite expecting but a fairly hard agree."
While a third put: "Absolutely love you Ian. 100% right."

Rashford has denied making an obscene gesture with his hand and captioned his apology with 'There are 2 sides to every story.'
United currently sit fifth in the Premier League and are at risk of missing out on next season's Champions League.
They're one point behind Arsenal in fifth and the Gunners have two games in hand.
