Ten Hag will ‘talk to’ Rashford over poor Man United form

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag says he will speak with Marcus Rashford about his poor form this season. 

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturday evening after Anthony Gordon tapped in the only goal of the game in the 55th minute.

The club have now failed to win a single game against a side in the top nine of the Premier League table away from home since the Dutchman took charge in 2022.

“We had a tough first half and said at half-time we were pleased to be in the game,” Ten Hag told TNT Sports.

“We had a good comeback in the last part of the game. We will talk tomorrow with the team about it. We go back, we will talk about this and move in to Wednesday.”

When asked for his opinion on why Rashford has failed to rekindle last season’s form after putting in a poor performance against Newcastle, Ten Hag responded: “I will talk to him and not the media.”

Man United face a quick turnaround as they prepare to host Chelsea at Old Trafford this coming Wednesday

“This team is resilient. We have seen it after [Manchester] City. We had a bad defeat and we stick together. We have a plan and we keep going.”
