Wayne Rooney Tells Marcus Rashford To F****ng Get His Head Out Of His A**e'
| Last updated
Rashford has looked completely out of sorts at United in recent times and his future at Old Trafford has come into question for the first time.
The 24-year-old has scored five goals in 26 appearances in all competitions this season and has quite clearly not been enjoying his football.
Rooney played with a young Rashford for two seasons during the end of his United career and he would inherit the No.10 shirt from him when he departed in 2017.
And the Derby County boss, who scored a record 253 goals for United, wants Rashford to going again and surpass his goals tally.
"To get the record and be United's highest goal scorer is f***ing massive," Rooney said in an interview with The Sun at a black tie event in Manchester.
"What I hope is that Marcus Rashford f***ing gets his head out of his a*** and goes and breaks that record. He is a Manchester lad."
In the same interview, Rooney revealed his ambitions to become United manager in the future and surprisingly dug out both Cristiano Ronaldo and Rio Ferdinand.
He also recalled telling Sir Alex Ferguson to "f*** off" when the Scot tried to sign the boyhood Everton fan for United as a 14-year-old.
Rashford, meanwhile, has hit 93 goals in 297 appearances for United after bagging a brace on his debut against FC Midtjylland in 2016.
He hit a total of 43 goals in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 campaigns but has only started three league games since the turn of the year.
His poor performances have resulted in Gareth Southgate dropping him from the England squad for friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast, though the Three Lions is reportedly poised to meet with Rashford to discuss getting him back to his best again.
