Clip shows Maguire disagreeing with Rashford over Martial red

A short video clip seems to show Harry Maguire disagreeing with Man Utd team-mate Marcus Rashford over Anthony Martial’s red card against Tottenham.

The Red Devils suffered their joint heaviest Premier League defeat with a 6-1 home thrashing at the hands of Tottenham on Sunday to further darken the bleak mood at Old Trafford.

Man Utd had gone in front through another Bruno Fernandes penalty in the opening two minutes but it quickly descended into their worst defeat since Manchester City triumphed 6-1 at Old Trafford nine years ago.

They had to play 60 minutes with 10 men as Martial was sent off, but they were cut apart by a rampant Tottenham, with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane scoring twice and Tanguy Ndombele and Serge Aurier also bagging.

Martial was sent off before the half hour mark when he grappled at a corner with Erik Lamela, who appeared to put his forearm towards Martial’s neck and the Frenchman retaliated by slapping the Spurs attacker and received a straight red card.

Some onlookers and pundits commented that Lamela should have received the same punishment, including Rashford.

However, some footage has emerged on social media showing Man Utd captain Maguire disagreeing with Rashford over the incident.

Speaking about Lamela’s actions, Rashford comments: “Nothing for that elbow?!”

The England international protested further by claiming both Martial and Lamela’s actions were similar, he added: “Why?! It’s the same!”

Before Maguire seems to back the referee’s decision, he said: “It’s not violent conduct they’ve checked” but Rashford responds: “He’s [Lamela] elbowed him!”
