Man Utd teammate says Marcus Rashford is 'not as humble as he used to be'
Manchester United’s shocking 4-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday – a sixth defeat in eight games – has suddenly put the issues within their squad into the spotlight.
The initial euphoria of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s post-Jose Mourinho regime has now washed away, and United are embroiled in a real fight to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

Solskjaer’s side are currently sixth, three points behind Chelsea in fourth, and while plenty of their fans might be happy to claim that they’d rather see their team lose to neighbours Manchester City this week than have them do rivals Liverpool a title favour, the truth is that they really need the points themselves for their own ambitions.
And a report in the Independent on Tuesday details some of the issues currently affecting the United squad.
It claims that a group of Spanish speaking players at the club – including some who are soon to leave such as Ander Herrera, Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo – is to be broken up, while Paul Pogba is continuing to make eyes at Real Madrid and David de Gea isn’t happy with his contrtact.
Perhaps the most interesting claim of the report concerns Marcus Rashford, though.
It is claimed that homegrown forward Rashford – who has been linked with a move to Barcelona amid his own contract wrangle – is “not quite the humble figure he used to be” according to what an unnamed teammate has told friends.
Solskjaer – who has also been criticised for the gruelling nature of the mid-season break he took the players on to Dubai – faces a tough job getting a squad back onside ahead of Wednesday’s visit of City and beyond.
And whatever happens in that game, it promises to be an eventful summer at Old Trafford.
