MARCUS Rashford has said he was left “completely unaware” by a personalised number plate mix-up involving his £280k McLaren.
The 25-year-old Manchester United star has been driving a luxurious McLaren 765 Long Tail with the number plate for a Skoda.
A supplier mix-up meant Rashford’s luxurious £280k motor ended up with a personalised number plate registered to a Skoda Citigo, according to DVLA checks.
“It was a supplier issue and nothing to do with Marcus,” said an Old Trafford source.
“It was a mistake he wasn’t even aware of.”
Priced from £8,365 to £11,910, the Citigo is touted as “a small car that’s great value”.
Whereas Rashford’s the 765LT has has a top speed of 205mph, hitting 60mph in just 2.1 seconds.
England international Rashford was spotted driving his silver McLaren at United’s Carrington training ground for the first time last month.
The 4-litre sports car, which he got in white, is one of just 765 built.
The luxury motor was delivered last month to the house where he lives with his mum in Wilmslow, Cheshire.
The plate intended for the star’s engine is now being delivered to him.
On the pitch Rashford has been in red-hot form with 21 goals this campaign.
And gaffer Ten Hag has challenged the England forward to smash his season’s best goal tally by the end of the campaign.
The United boss wants his in form forward to challenge himself to hit 35 goals by the summer.
Ten Hag declared there is “much more to come” from Rashford who has netted seven times in his last eight Premier League matches.
The dangerous forward opened the scoring against bitter rivals Leeds on Sunday.
Rashford made it 13 goals in 15 games with an 80th minute header.
Young starlet Alejandro Garnacho wrapped up the high-tempo entertaining match with a fantastic second.
The United teenager was guilty of sulking after being taken off in the 2-2 draw with Leeds in mid-week and was told by Ten Hag that he “had to score” in the game.
But Garnacho’s arrival here as a sub was a total success and he scored the second to seal an important win for the Red Devils.
