Rashford risks angering Man Utd fans after naming his ‘favourite other city’ to play in

Marcus Rashford has revealed his preferred city for playing football, aside from Manchester.

A Manchester native, Rashford emerged from Manchester United’s youth system before debuting for the first team in 2015 under Louis van Gaal.

During his debut at Old Trafford, Rashford netted two goals in a 5-1 victory against Midtjylland in the Europa League.

Since then, the English striker has endeared himself to the fans, tallying 128 goals in 328 matches across various competitions.

In a conversation with music artists D-Block Europe, Rashford disclosed that, aside from Manchester, Liverpool is his preferred city to play football in.

Rashford was asked: “Like we’ve got a favourite city to perform in, have you got a favourite city to like play football in?”

The 26-year-old forward first said Manchester, but when asked to name another place, he said: “Liverpool, yeah Liverpool.”

In the current campaign, Rashford has faced challenges in delivering his top form, registering only five goals and six assists in 31 appearances across all competitions.

Prior to Manchester United’s 2-1 loss to Fulham, manager Erik ten Hag issued a cautionary message to Rashford and his fellow attackers.

He said: “We have possibilities there (in attack), with Diallo returning from an injury.

“He is doing well in training. Omari Forson, he is doing well. We have options to fill in those positions.”

Ten Hag continued: “It is not set Marcus Rashford has to play as a centre forward.”

The Dutchman also backed Antony to bounce back, he said: “Ah yes, absolutely (we believe in Antony). He has to prove a point, but he will do. And he has a big potential. He hasn’t shown it lately, but I know what his talent is.

“It is about proving his talent. It is about him. He will probably get his opportunities. But that was always the idea. You have competition. Now, he has to show himself on the training pitch.”

On Wednesday night, Manchester United will return to the field to face Nottingham Forest in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
