Manchester United’s striker Marcus Rashford went under the spotlight in the last few days due to a personal incident with Manchester United’s management, as the 26-year-old player was caught lying to Erik Ten Hag and the club in the previous hours to United’s FA Cup game against Newport County.

Man United in shock, the details of Rashford's party in Belfast were uncovered

The player, who called the club and said to be ill to skip a training session ahead of the clash, had been having a 12-hour tequila bender until 3:00 am in a Belfast nightclub according to the facts revealed by the English journal The Sun, and the revelation of the facts has caused a great controversy in Manchester.

In this sense, after having suffered a fine of two weeks’ wages worth €650,000 from the club, Rashford and his professionalism had been under judgment in the last few hours, and the Liverpool retired defender Jamie Carragher has been one of the latest football icons to join the controversy towards the striker.

Carragher said Rashford can’t be the next Rooney

"I don’t ever believe he was this saint that he was made out to be, and this inner circle I think they have done a great job with Marcus”, said Carragher speaking on the Stick to Football podcast, sponsored by Sky Bet, and added “I’ve always said this – if Rashford is Manchester United’s best player, which I’d probably say he is, I don’t think Manchester United can win anything big”, slamming the Mancunian striker with a strong sentence saying "I don’t think he’s quite good enough to be the Wayne Rooney or the Andy Cole or Dwight Yorke, but there’s nobody else there.'"
