Marcus Rashford recently made headlines when Manchester United boss Eric ten Hague criticized the forward for going to a nightclub.
But the England international appears to have put that issue behind him, if training pictures are anything to go by.
United go into the Champions League clash with Copenhagen tonight knowing they need to get all three points to boost their chances of reaching the Champions League knockout stage.
They have won only one of their three matches so far, while also losing to Galatasaray and Bayern Munich.
Marcus Rashford will be hoping to start Man Utd’s Champions League clash with Copenhagen
But Rashford looked in good mood in training before the match.
The pictures show the 26-year-old with a big smile on his face during training – a stark contrast to the way he looked at the weekend.
Rashford was injured for United as they beat Fulham 1–0, with Bruno Fernandes scoring the only goal of the game.
He looked sad and unhappy as he sat on the bench, while being criticized for ignoring the fans in attendance in west London.
But with Rashford smiling again it appears he has moved on from the latest controversy.
The England international’s participation in training suggests he will be a contender to start against Copenhagen on Wednesday night.
And that gives the Red Devils a boost as they look to pick up an important European win.
Rashford was also all smiles as he boarded the plane, with United keen to avoid a repeat of the last time they played in Copenhagen.
This all happened in 2006.
And despite United boasting a star-studded squad, they lost 1–0 with former Aston Villa star Marcus Allbach scoring the only goal of the game.
Speaking ahead of the event, Ten Hag insisted Rashford is committed to the cause.
“He is working hard in training to get back into form,” Ten Hag said.
“Marcus is very committed to Manchester United.”
Ten Haag also discusses Rasmus Hjolund.
The Denmark international is yet to score in the Premier League since his big move to United in the summer.
But Ten Hag is pleased with the way the striker has adjusted to life at Old Trafford so far, adding: “I think he [has integrated] very well.
“He has already scored three goals in the Champions League, which is very good for the integration period.
“I think as a team we can get better in possession so we can create more and better chances and that will also give our attacking players more opportunities to score.
“We have to work on a stable starting XI or at least 12 or 13 players and then the routine will be better and we will create better chances.
“But as I said, socially, I think he has adjusted very well to the team and the club.
