People are loving Marcus Rashford’s response to a Celta Vigo player ushering him off the pitch

The Manchester United star also got massive praise from his manager.

Not even The A-Team could overshadow Marcus Rashford as the Manchester United striker provided the world with another glimpse of his prodigious talents courtesy of a sublime free-kick against Celta Vigo.

After the game, Jose Mourinho said that the teenager was “a 19 year old kid that’s in love with football. A kid that finishes training sessions and stays a half an hour longer to practice taking free-kicks. He works, he works, he works. Let’s forget the age because what matters is the quality.”

Mourinho admitted that Rashford “started the game with a problem” and with the games coming thick and fast, Manchester United fans will be hoping that Rashford’s injury is a slight one, especially with a match away to Arsenal at the weekend.

Despite the win in Spain, Mourinho’s mood was dampened as both Rashford and Ashley Young limped off.

As Rashford left the pitch, some of the Celta Vigo players did their very best to get the England international to hurry up his efforts.

Take a look at how Rashford replied.

Yes, the striker might be a teenager but he’s clearly not going to be bullied. In fact, he’s the one bullying the opposition.

It won’t be lost on Manchester United fans that Rashford was speaking to former Manchester City player John Guidetti here.
