Marcus Rashford recalls day he didn’t take a photo with Man United legend Wayne Rooney for inspirational reason

Manchester United star, Marcus Rashford says he didn’t take a photo with club legend Wayne Rooney for motivation

Marcus Rashford has had a weird time at Manchester United. The 26-year-old was thought to be the future of Old Trafford. However, he hasn’t lived up to his potential, leading to a lot of backlash from the media.

Some people have even questioned his commitment to the club and football. However, the English forward has made it clear that playing for the Red Devils is everything to him.

While speaking to The Players Tribune, the 26-year-old touched on his struggle to get to United and shared an interesting tale of how he refused to take a photo with Wayne Rooney because he believed he would play next to him one day. Let’s have a look at what he had to say.

“I don’t need a picture.”

“I’m going to be playing alongside them some day.” 

This is what Rashford had to say when his brother asked him why he didn’t want a picture with Rooney. The 26-year-old added that he was the only kid that didn’t get a picture that day.

The English forward has done well to reach the level that he’s at today. However, speaking up on social media instead of showing his talent on the pitch is not gonna do much to silence the critics.

Words are just words. Until Marcus Rashford can realise his potential at Manchester United and start putting up consistently good performances, the media will continue to question him.
