Marcus Rashford’s brother and agent deletes post with subtle dig at Gareth Southgate

Marcus Rashford’s agent and brother Dwaine Maynard had made his feelings known over the Manchester United star’s omission from England’s Euro 2024 squad.

The dig at Gareth Southgate’s selections came after England’s 1-1 draw with Denmark.

There is no getting away from the fact Rashford had a difficult campaign with United, scoring just seven goals in the Premier League. He should have been brought to the European Championship to give England something they lack in attack.

With Harry Kane dropping deep in games, the Three Lions need an outlet on the flanks. Someone to run at defenders and cause havoc and we know that Rashford is capable of that.

After a poor display from England, Rashford’s agent and brother appeared to slam Southgate’s decision to overlook the forward.

Dwaine wrote: “It’s hard to sit and watch when you honestly believe your man could make a difference!”

The post has since been deleted.

Rashford finished the season on a high with a strong performance in the FA Cup final win over Man City.

We all want to see Rashford back at his best in a United shirt, so the summer off will do him good and he can focus on hitting the ground running when the new season begins.

  1. I think most fair-minded fans would have been wishing Rashford was there to terrorise defences, but, even had he been in the squad, Southgate wouldn’t have played him until only a few minutes of the match remained.
    But double advantage for we Reds: a refreshed Marcus next season….and Southgate’ star is rapidly sinking.
    New United Manager – my bottom!!
