Parker also shut down suggestions that Rashford isn’t yet fully fit and believes Rashford’s teammates will start showing their annoyance if his performances don’t improve.
“I don’t think it’s anything to do with fitness. Footballers are definitely fit; they train every day, they’re stretching, they’re agile. Everything about them is fine. I just think it’s about what’s in your head now.
“Does he want to play for the biggest club in the world regularly, or does he want to watch them? At the moment, he’s playing like someone who’s trying his best to watch them play, but he keeps on getting picked.
“And, after a while, a few players are going to get a little bit annoyed, that he’s not playing well, not earning the right to play, but still playing.”
