Marcus Rashford apologised to Manchester United and the club’s supporters on Sunday evening, following his red card in the 2-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.
“Emotions got the better of me, I shouldn’t have reacted like that. Sorry to everyone at the club and all the fans. #MUFC.”
When asked about the incident in his post-match press conference, United manager Jose Mourinho said:
“It was the experience of Bardsley, with 20 years of football, against the impulse and the naivety of a guy that has been in top football for three years but is still a young kid. ”
Was it harsh? I don’t know. It could have been a yellow card for both and keep going maybe. But I cannot say.
