Loads of Manchester United fans have been blasting Marcus Rashford as they thought that he was at fault for Paris Saint-Germain’s first goal in the UEFA Champions League last night.
The England international lost possession of the ball which led to Neymar opening the scoring for PSG on the night, and it ended up proving costly as even though he managed to equalise for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, the 2019/20 Champions League finalists won 3-1 at Old Trafford to leave the group wide open going in to the final set of fixtures.
Is Rashford an important player for Manchester United?
Rashford actually lost the ball no fewer than 14 times in total, despite only being on the pitch for 74 minutes after he had to be taken off with an injury, with Paul Pogba replacing him (Sofascore).
Given that he only touched the ball a total of 39 times in the game, one of the lowest totals of any United player, the 23 year-old lost possession of the ball around every 2.8 touches on average, which looks like it really wound up several Red Devils’ fans .
Manchester United fan reaction to Rashford display
These Man United supporters blasted the display of the striker on Twitter, with one fan even calling him a ‘fool’:
Rashford’s fault. Should have shot, passed or done something with the ball. Instead he looks out of sorts and disinterested.
