Marcus Rashford and Mike Phelan engage on Twitter after Man Utd star says he’s “offended”



Marcus Rashford wasn’t best pleased at being left out of a group shot taken at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground – especially as he was present on the day!

Marcus Rashford and Mike Phelan engaged in a humorous chat on Twitter after the Manchester United forward announced he’s “starting to get offended”.

Rashford was commenting in response to a picture Manchester United’s official Twitter account posted to the social media site.

The picture showed a group of Red Devils players socially distancing on the training ground, and was accompanied with the caption: “S Q U A D G O A L S”.

Rashford was training at Carrington on the same day, but wasn’t present when the photograph was taken, prompting him to reply to the post: “Erm, I’m starting to get offended. Where am I??”

Manchester United opted against responding to the England international, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s assistant Phelan felt obliged to send Rashford some love.

“Calm down young’un,” wrote Phelan, alongside a picture of him hugging Rashford. “We still love you lad.”

Rashford responded by posting a video of himself celebrating a goal for United and grabbing the badge on his shirt.

But Rashford wasn’t finished there, and posted an image of himself looking angry with his shorts rolled up at Carrington.

Alongside it he wrote: “Ermmm, I think I understand why you didn’t post me…”

He then followed this up with the tweet: “Maybe I spotted you taking the pic without me. That’s the only explanation for this look…”

Later Rashford posted the same picture of himself looking angry next to the photograph of his team-mates posing in a group.

He’s not letting it get to him!

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training



Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
