Marcus Rashford’s brother and football agent Dane Rashford has been arrested in the United States on domestic violence charges (via the Telegraph).
The 31-year-old was arrested on October 20 in Miami Beach, Florida, after being charged with the misdemeanour of battery, further defined as domestic violence.
Rashford, who is the director of DN May Sports Management, appeared in court the following day where his bond was set at $1,500.
He has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for a hearing on November 27. Rashford is not being held in custody but has been issued by the court with a ‘stay away order’.
Making headlines for the wrong reasons
Marcus Rashford has recently been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The 26-year-old was criticised by manager Erik ten Hag for hosting a party hours after Manchester United’s 3-0 defeat against Manchester City.
The left winger also received a red card in Wednesday’s Champions League game against FC Copenhagen.
United lost 4-3, denting their hopes of progressing to the knockout stage.
The England international is already under considerable pressure due to his woeful form, scoring just once in 15 appearances across all competitions.
He is now linked to further negative publicity with his brother Dane arrested in the US on domestic violence charges.
The latest news could impact his mindset when he is already struggling.
Rashford is one of the main players at United, and he must return to form to help his side succeed in the Premier League and Champions League.
