Not only that, the forward dismissed rumours that Rangnick has lost the team and admitted that they have nothing but respect for the German coach. Rashford also added that he has been disappointed with his recent performances and is "determined to" prove his worth.
"We've all been disappointed with recent performances and 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... I'm not sulking, I'm not unhappy,” Rashford said on a social media post.
"Am I disappointed in some recent performances? Of course I am. I'm my own biggest critic. It's been a tough start but I am determined to prove my worth. My dedication and my desire should never have been in question. I love this club."
