Damning Footage Of Marcus Rashford Being Met With Sarcastic Cheers As He Was Substituted

Marcus Rashford was sarcastically cheered by Manchester United fans after a dismal showing vs Aston Villa last night.

Rashford started the underwhelming 1-0 FA Cup third round win at Old Trafford and was not at the races.

He played from the left flank but was incredibly ineffective throughout and looked disinterested in his 84 minutes on the pitch.

Rashford's body language was questionable and there was one moment in the second half where he decided against chasing a loose ball when David Martinez parried a Mason Greenwood effort inside the area and a tap-in could have been on the cards.

He was hooked for youngster Anthony Elanga and United fans were so frustrated that many inside the stadium cheered the decision.

Captain Bruno Fernandes also went off at the same time but while his name was cheered, Rashford's reaction was very different as footage showed in a clip posted online.

Rashford cut a miserable figure when sat on the bench next to Fernandes, having now failed to score for United since October.

He had put out a long essay on social media a couple of days before the game, insisting he has "endless respect" for Ralf Rangnick and the club on the whole.

At half-time, England legend and all-time Premier League record goalscorer Alan Shearer had claimed Rashford didn't look like he was enjoying his football and that "everything was a chore".

Interim boss Rangnick could not fault Rashford's effort post-match but was unsure as to why he is having such difficulty.

"I think he's trying hard," Rangnick said on Rashford, as per Sky Sports.

In training he was doing well in the last couple of days, that's why he was quite rightly in the starting XI.

"I think in the first half we found him quite often, but we also tried to get him into the box. In the second half that was not that often the case and that's why at the end of the game I decided to make two changes with Anthony Elanga and Jesse Lingard.

"Of course it would be good, for example, for Marcus if he could score a goal but as long as he's trying, as long as he's training well I don't see that much of a problem."
