Coady concerned for ‘top lad’ Rashford

Conor Coady is mystified by Marcus Rashford’s current struggles and believes there may be “something more to it”.

Rashford missed training on Friday after being pictured in a Belfast nightclub on Thursday night and was subsequently left out of Manchester United’s squad for Sunday’s 4-2 FA Cup win at Newport County.

Talks on Monday between club and player have resolved the matter with a United statement saying Rashford had taken “responsibility for his actions” and was available for Thursday’s trip to Wolves.

It’s not Rashford’s first indiscretion this season and Coady finds it hard to marry this version of the 26-year-old with the one he knows from their time together on England duty.

The Leicester City defender told Radio Five Live’s Monday Night Club: “Seeing him like this doesn’t fit, it doesn’t seem right to me. Something is there that we don’t know about.

“You see the stories coming out and wonder what’s going on? Something’s happening. To know him and realise how much of a top lad he is, you wonder ‘is there something more to it?’”

Coady also believes United need to do better to keep these disciplinary matters in-house.

He added: “These things don’t get out at other football clubs, they only seem to get out at Manchester United. 

“Whenever we read these things, they always seem to come out at Man United.”
