'Got to be about my car, my salary or jewellery': Rashford slams media for questioning Man United commitment

In his latest feature for The Players' Tribune, Marcus Rashford has passionately defended his commitment to Manchester United.

Of late, there's been a rise in negative publicity for Rashford, particularly because of his drop in form and subsequent partying fiasco.

The forward, 26, is not happy with the tone of some of these reports especially as they seem to focus on all the wrong things.

Rashford wrote: "I don’t normally like to respond to things said about me. It’s not in my nature.

"I’m an introvert... but sometimes, certain lines get crossed, and I can’t help but want people to just understand who I am as a person," he wrote.

"I’m not trying to have a go at the media. I understand the game... [but] it can’t just be about me as a 26-year-old lad on a night out, or a lad getting a parking ticket.

"It’s got to be about how much my car costs, guessing my weekly salary, my jewellery or even my tattoos.

"It’s got to be about my body language, and questioning my morals, and speculating about my family, and my football future.

"There’s a tone to it that you don’t get with all footballers. Let’s just leave it at that."

Rashford also hit out at them for questioning his commitment to Man United, adding: "If you ever question my commitment to Man United, that’s when I have to speak up.

"It’s like somebody questioning my entire identity, and everything I stand for as a man. The story's not big enough with just the facts, that's what the problem is."
