Marcus Rashford has insisted that he has “endless respect” for Manchester United’s coaching staff, including interim manager Ralf Rangnick, and reaffirmed his dedication to the club.
Recent reports have suggested that several United players have expressed their displeasure with Rangnick and his coaches and are considering their futures at Old Trafford.
An underwhelming start to the season saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked in November and replaced by the German coach until the end of the current campaign.
Despite a promising start, an insipid 1-1 draw at Newcastle just before the turn of the year and a 1-0 home defeat by Wolves last time out have sparked talk of a crisis at the club.
However, Rashford took to Twitter on Saturday to reassure United fans that he backs the former RB Leipzig boss and is determined to help the team turn things around.
“We’ve all been disappointed with recent performances,” the England international posted. “We’ve been as disappointed with the news coverage questioning our commitment to not only the manager and the coaching staff, but the club.
“I have endless respect for both and I’m looking forward to bettering my game under the staff at Manchester United.
“I’m not sulking, I’m not unhappy. Am I disappointed in some of my recent performances? Of course I am. I’m my own biggest critic. It’s been a tough start but I’m determined to prove my worth.
“My dedication and my desire to be here should never be in question. I love this club.”
Rashford has managed just four goal involvements – three goals, one assist – in 14 appearances for United in all competitions this season.
The Red Devils host Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa in the FA Cup third round on Monday.
