Rashford says he’s "embarrassed" by Liverpool loss in statement to Man Utd fans

Marcus Rashford has apologised to Manchester United fans on social media after Liverpool's 5-0 mauling of the Red Devils on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were humiliated on their own patch as the Reds ran riot against their arch-rivals.

Goals from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota put Jurgen Klopp's men ahead inside 13 minutes before Mohamed Salah put a hat-trick past David De Gea to claim the match ball and cap off a resounding victory.

Matters were made worse for United when substitute Paul Pogba was dismissed for a horror-tackle on Keita in the 60th-minute having only been brought onto the field at half-time.

Star man Rashford has admitted he has struggled to find the right words to apologise for the dismal performance.

"I can’t lie you haven’t heard from me on here because as a United fan I didn’t really know what to say after Sunday," tweeted the 23-year-old on Wednesday evening.

"I was embarrassed. I am embarrassed. Our fans are everything and you didn’t deserve that.

"We’re working hard to try and fix this. We have to redeem ourselves."

Since the defeat there have been vociferous calls for Solskjaer to be sacked but the United board have confirmed the Norwegian will be given until the November international break to prove his credentials.
