SPORT NEWS: You act like petulant child – Paul Parker slams Man United forward

Former Manchester United defender, Paul Parker, has slammed Marcus Rashford, branding the England attacker ‘a petulant child’.

Rashford scored 34 goals in 64 appearances for the Red Devils and England last season.

Manchester United offered him a new long-term contract following his goal-scoring exploits, ending the lingering speculation surrounding his future at Old Trafford.

However, the 26-year-old has failed to pick up from where he stopped last season.

United managed to beat Burnley 1-0 on Saturday to end a run of four straight defeats.

Parker feels that Manchester United’s fans have grown tired of Rashford’s antics.

“He was mentioned with some of the biggest clubs in the world. Real Madrid and PSG were interested, but… Were they really interested in him? I don’t think so. I think it was the media pushing it,” Parker told My Betting Site .

“I would love to see Rashford proving me wrong, and I will happily eat a humble pie but I just don’t see it happening.

“I think the fans are tired of seeing him faking an injury all the times he gets tackled. They want to see him get up, chase back and get the ball back.

“What he is doing is something you would expect to see in a schoolyard from a petulant child.

“You wouldn’t expect it to happen at Old Trafford. Not in a million years.

“But he does that every single time and it shows me that he might not be a player for Man United after all.

“He needs to change his game and his attitude.
