The Man United forward backs Ralf Rangnick amid recent reports of dressing room unrest at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have won only five of their last 14 Premier League games. The club sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November. However, United have made little progress on their way to regaining their best form.

United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick is reportedly facing a crisis in his relationship with the squad. A group of the players are unhappy with their lack of game time under the German manager. On the other hand, some of the experienced players don’t agree with Rangnick’s tactical ideas.

Marcus Rashford, who has received criticism for his silence on the subject, has now spoken out.

 He wrote on Twitter“I read something earlier that said I’d been quiet on [Twitter] but what can I say that will make this better other than showing you all on the pitch?

“We’ve been disappointed with recent performances and we’ve been as disappointed with the news coverage questioning our commitment to not only the manager and 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 have been in question. I love this club.”

United will be back in FA Cup action against Aston Villa on Monday. The Red Devils will face the Villa again in a Premier League game five days later.
