Marcus Rashford opens up on Man Utd atmosphere after training ground rows

Marcus Rashford has admitted that Manchester United’s title chasing squad argue “everyday” at training – but remain determined to win a major trophy this season.

United head to Liverpool on Sunday, looking to open up a gap on the champions at the top of the Premier League table.

Rashford played a key role in United’s winner at Burnley in midweek, a result which saw them occupy top spot for the first time at this point of a season since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

Ahead of the game at Anfield, former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg sparked controversy by claiming United have been “clever” about how they win penalties.

Since football restarted last June, United have won more penalties than any other English side (18), with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also making reference to it last week.

But Rashford has insisted that any issues on the pitch are nothing compared to the rows at Carrington, with United’s will to win on show even during training session.

Speaking after receiving the Football Writers' Association annual tribute award for outstanding service to the game, he said: “It’s worse in training than it is in games. We’re having arguments everyday, shouting at whoever the referee.

“As you can imagine, it’s a lot worse in training!"

Despite any competitive disagreements during Solskjaer’s sessions, Rashford has insisted that the character within the squad is ready to compete for silverware.

United have lost four semi finals under the Norwegian, but the striker believes those disappointments are helping to drive them to further successes.

He added: “I think it’s always been there, but this year it’s had to come out because we’ve already experienced things that we didn’t want or expect to happen.

How will Liverpool vs Man Utd finish this weekend? Have your say here.

“Getting knocked out of the Champions League, losing the semi final [to Manchester City ], losing the semi final in the Europa League.

“If you don’t come out and be a leader and someone that the squad can look to in difficult moments, it will continue to happen.

“We have to show we are ready to fight for what we want and what we all want is success.

“We’re more ready now than we were two years ago, in terms of leaders on the pitch and ready to fight for trophies.”
