Marcus Rashford has accused a German journalist of ‘making up stories’ about a player split at Manchester United.
Christian Falk, head of football for tabloid Bild, tweeted on Wednesday that a group of England players, including Rashford, had become “irritated” by Cristiano Ronaldo’s influence at Old Trafford.
Falk added that there was a risk of “a split in the team” emerging at Manchester United.

But Rashford fired back, accusing Falk of “making up” the story.
“Are we just making it up as we go now then?” the attacker tweeted in response to Falk.
“Please stop looking for divides”.
Falk defended the validity of his report, responding to Rashford, “It’s not true and you know it.”
Brighton captain Lewis Dunk was later dismissed after consultation with the video assistant referee, and Bruno Fernandes sealed the win with a second left in stoppage time.
The Daily Mail reported two weeks ago that Manchester United caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick has tapped prominent German journalist Raphael Honigstein to advise him on his media strategy until the end of the season.
