Euro 2024: Rashford under fire for holidaying in New York after withdrawing from England squad

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has come under fire after he was pictured in New York, United States, following his withdrawal from the England squad for their Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Chelsea legend Tony Cascarino believes the 25-year-old may have damaged his reputation with England boss Gareth Southgate.

Rashford shared a picture of himself in New York on Thursday, and Cascarino admitted the Manchester United striker’s actions are not a good look.

Rashford was called up to the England squad for the games against Italy and Ukraine, but the striker withdrew this week with a toe injury.

But the injury didn’t stop him from quickly getting on a long-haul flight to enjoy a city break with his girlfriend.

“I would say your manager is not pleased with that,” Cascarino said on talkSPORT.

“Why would he be? Well, with his withdrawal, how can you decide on a player if he’s not present? He’s not been present enough.

“England were [likely] not aware of a trip to New York, and that’s going to frustrate Gareth, because Gareth ultimately wants loyalty from his players.

“Some people will say he’s entitled to go on holiday, he’s injured. He didn’t have to be there.”
