RUBBING IT IN
Leeds United fans mocked Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho from the Old Trafford concourse on Saturday, KEALAN HUGHES reports.
Rashford, 23, and new United signing Sancho, 21, were accused of “letting the country down” by the Leeds faithful.
The fans were of course referring to the pair’s misses for England in the Euro 2020 final penalty shoot-out against Italy.
It was not just a vocal minority, with a crowd of Leeds fans singing “Sancho and Rashford, you’ve let the country down” – an adaptation of England fans’ tune “Scotland get battered, everywhere they go”.
Some supporters could be seen with wide grins on their faces as others filmed the scenes inside the stadium.
It is a rather insensitive reaction to the Euro disappointment given both players were subject to racist abuse after the penalty misses.
