Marcus Rashford slams journalist’s claims Cristiano Ronaldo undermines Man Utd dressing room unity | Soccer News

Marcus Rashford has claimed he is among a group of Manchester United players “irritated” by Cristiano Ronaldo’s attempts to rule the dressing room with his own clique.

Ronaldo, who had gone on a six-game scoreless streak, ended his goalscoring drought in emphatic style with a stunning midweek opener at Manchester United 2-0 against Brighton at Old Trafford, lifting them to fourth. of the Premier League standings.

Leading German journalist Christian Falk posted on social media on Wednesday that there was “a risk of a split in the team” with Rashford, with Harry Maguire expressing outrage at Ronaldo’s behavior.

But Rashford dismissed the allegations in a written message on Twitter.

He wrote: “Are we just making it up as we go along now?”.

“Please stop looking for divides.”
