Marcus Rashford has apologised to Manchester United fans following their woeful start to the new season, claiming the ‘last few weeks simply haven’t been good enough’.
United suffered yet another loss on Sunday in the Premier League, falling to a 1-0 defeat against Newcastle at St James’ Park to slip down to 12th in the table after eight matches.
After missing out on Champions League football at the end of last season, United fans had been hoping their side would bounce back but they have carried on in the same form.
