Manchester United have endured a difficult start to the season after losing both of their opening fixtures in the Premier League, with the current squad coming under increasing pressure.
United players have been criticised for being outworked by their opponents and that certainly was the case against Brentford last weekend when the London side put four past Erik ten Hag’s men.
Wayne Rooney, the former United captain, insisted that Ten Hag must opt for energy over talent in Monday’s game against Liverpool. As a result, he suggested that Marcus Rashford should be dropped from the side.
Now, the 24-year-old has named one ‘non-negotiable’ aspect of representing United, insisting that working hard is a must despite whatever your personal situation is.

“For me, that’s a non-negotiable at the club,” Rashford told Football Daily when asked about players giving it their all. “Your situation always changes – sometimes you have good spells, sometimes you’re not in a good spell.
“But the one thing that has to remain the same is your dedication and your commitment to training and the games. So I feel like whatever the situation is, I have to give 100% for myself and for my family, friends and the fans.”
