Mystery as Man Utd striker Marcus Rashford dropped for disciplinary reasons and benched for visit to Wolves | The Sun

MARCUS RASHFORD has been dropped to the bench for Manchester United's trip to Wolves due following disciplinary action from the club.

The England international was expected to lead the line for the Red Devils at Molineux following back-to-back goalscoring appearances against Burnley and Nottingham Forest.

But manager Erik ten Hag has revealed the 25-year-old has been demoted to the bench following "internal disciplinary" action.

The Dutchman didn't reveal the reason why Rashford had been disciplined.

He said: "Internal discipline. No details. Our rules. Now focus on the game.

"He is in very good shape and nobody can play every game.”

United fans were quick to comment on Rashford's omission, with one asking: "Why has Marcus Rashford been benched?"

Another asked: "What did Marcus Rashford do?

And another said: "Marcus Rashford is amongst the most in-form players in the league but if he needs to be punished for being later to a pre-match meeting then ETH has my full support.

"Doesn’t matter who you are or how good you are."
