Man Utd’s Marcus Rashford crashes his £700,000 Rolls-Royce after the Burnley game

Man Utd’s Marcus Rashford crashes his £700,000 Rolls-Royce after the Burnley game, with footage emerging across social media.

The England international crashed the vehicle into a traffic island as footage shows the extent of the accident on social media.

It has been reported that Rashford is uninjured but left shaken with his vehicle seriously damaged, as broken parts of the car could be seen scattered all over the road.

Sources say it reportedly happened ‘near the club’s Carrington training complex not long after he had left.’

His Man Utd teammates returned from Burnley by coach before getting in their personal vehicles to head back to their homes after the game.

Police soon turned up to the scene, with the Rolls Royce Black Badge Wraith left strewn sideways across the road with traffic appearing to be halted with officers investigating and clearing what was left behind.

As seen in the video footage above, video footage showed a traffic island toppled over just metres from where he pulled over onto the side of the road.

Fellow player Bruno Fernandes had reportedly stopped his car, got out and helped him.

Reports add that no arrests made, and no ambulance was required, with Rashford expected to play in United’s televised Carabao Cup clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

The 25 year old was one of Erik ten Hag’s main attacking threats against the Clarets on Saturday.

Manchester United picked up their first September win, with thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ impressive volley set up by Jonny Evans, who had a goal ruled out for offside by VAR on his first Man Utd start since 2015; Burnley bottom on a point as United move into eighth.

Player of the match: Jonny Evans.

Manchester United captain and match-winner Bruno Fernandes to TNT Sports: “It was a great pass from Jonny [Evans]. I know he has great qualities playing the ball in behind with both feet. I was waiting for it [the pass]. Burnley give space behind but it was tough to get that at times and we took the chance when it was there.

“We know that we have been in a tough bit of momentum but we knew we could come back from it. Obviously today the performance was not the best but we got the three points which is the most important thing.

“We knew the game today would be tough. Burnley play very well and to be honest I do not think that the points they have reflects how good they are. We are happy to take the win home today.”

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag to BBC Sport: “It was clear. Of course we needed that win. We had a tough run of games against good opponents. It wasn’t necessary to lose those games. Today was must-win.

“The team spirit and how they fight together [was impressive]. It was a team attacking with 11 and defending with 11. They supported each other.

“A lot has been against us, like injuries and decisisons. Like tonight. Murphy’s Law where everything goes against us. You have to fight and find a turning point. It shows the dressing room is together. They fight together.

“In stages of the all the games we’ve played we’ve played good football but if you want to win you have to do it consistently. That was a brilliant spell of the game. The pass from Evans was brilliant, the movement and finish from Bruno too.

“Last year we had the most clean sheets in the Premier League. We were disciplined and followed the rules. When we do that it’s difficult to play against Manchetser United.

“He [Evans] gave the team calmness. His skills were brilliant, as with the goal.”

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans speaking to TNT Sports: “I loved every minute of it. Before the game you get a feeling, I couldn’t wait, just pure excitement. Coming up here on the bus I was buzzing. That was my 200th game for Man Utd, I never thought I would ever reach that figure – the best night of my life.

“I wasn’t consciously thinking I would sign [after getting the first call]. When you get to a certain age you start to wind down your career. I got the call and didn’t have another option, so I just took it and tried to do my best in training and take my chance. You then just hope your body sees you through.

“It was never a thought that i would come in and be a starter, i was told that my role would be to provide competition and that is how I have approached it. With a few injuries I then had the chance to start tonight.

“They play differently here to how we did at my previous club, so I have been trying to get used to it and adapt my play. I think I slotted in well tonight and really added my experience to the side.”

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany to BBC Sport: “We’re very calm. We knew we had a very tough start in terms of the fixtures. We’ve put in a performance today and showed signs. We could have had a result. We’ve shown signs of being an exciting team. The start is difficult in terms of results but hopeful. I don’t see any reason to think this team lacks character or margin to grow.

“We’re prepared for this. We could win the first five or lose the first five, it doesn’t make us any better or worse. Hopefully fans can rest assured we’re working 24-7 behind the scenes. We’ve seen improvements today, hopefully more in the weeks to come.

“Every game we’ve been dangerous. We didn’t take our moments. The belief has to be there that we will. For us it’s maybe about creating more. And believing this team will get better as the season goes on.

“Losing is hard but if you can process it in the right way it’s the best way to learn. The results will come, that’s the belief that has to live in you.”
