Marcus Rashford makes tongue-in-cheek joke after being dropped by Erik ten Hag

Marcus Rashford shared a light-hearted tweet after he was dropped from Manchester United’s starting line-up for Saturday’s 1-0 win over Wolves for showing up late to a team meeting.

Erik ten Hag outlined that Rashford had been benched for the trip to Molineux due to a ‘disciplinary’ issue before the match – but the Dutchman didn’t hesitate to introduce the in-form forward at the break with the game goalless. Rashford went on to plunder the winning goal to ensure United would head into 2023 in the top-four

When he was asked about his absence, the United academy graduate explained: “Yeah it’s team rules, I think it’s a mistake that can happen but disappointed not to play but I understand the decision. Ultimately, I’m happy we managed to win the game anyway so we can draw a line under it and move on.

“I was a little bit late for a meeting, I overslept, it can happen,” he added.

The United striker would later make light of the incident in a tweet. “Better late than never,” Rashford quipped along with a clock emoji. “Thanks to the away fans today, great energy as always let’s keep this momentum going into 2023
