Marcus Rashford Slips Into Trouble Again Days After Being Left Out of England 2024 Euros Squad


Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has slipped into trouble again days after being left out of England squad for 2024 Euros.

The England forward was reportedly caught for over-speeding and has been charged. According to The Sun, the Manchester United star drove at a speed of 70mph in his £560,000 Rolls-Royce.

Following the charge, he will reportedly stand trial on September 27 and could bag a hefty penalty if found guilty.
