Rashford admits club rivalry set aside in National team

Marcus Rashford could not bring himself to watch Manchester City lift the Champions League – but the Manchester United star says club rivalries are left at the door with England.

Marcus Rashford admitted that he couldn’t bring himself to witness Manchester City’s triumph in the Champions League. However, the Manchester United star emphasized that club rivalries are set aside when it comes to the England national team, thanks to the strong bond within the group.

Under the guidance of Erik ten Hag, Manchester United experienced a notable improvement this season. They secured the Carabao Cup in February and finished in third place in the Premier League.

Nevertheless, Manchester City halted United’s aspirations of ending the season on a high note by winning the first-ever all-Manchester FA Cup final. City’s victory kept them on track to replicate United’s historic treble triumph of 1999.

In Saturday’s Champions League final, Pep Guardiola’s men went on to achieve that feat by defeating Inter Milan. Although Rashford watched the match on television, he admitted that he could only bear so much.

When asked about Trent Alexander-Arnold turning off the TV when United won the FA Cup due to his inability to witness Liverpool’s rivals celebrating success, Rashford responded, “I can relate to that entirely. It’s the same for me.”

“I like watching football, I like watching the best games so that’s what I did.

“But after they win the game, I don’t need to watch them celebrating and all that stuff, so yeah, TV off!”
