Nike drops Marcus Rashford error with ‘Mark’ poster featuring Manchester United star

0

Sports brand Nike has dropped a rumor involving Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford at its US headquarters in Oregon.

In an advert around their establishment, the United striker was celebrated with his own banner, but the glaring manufacturer error sees the 24-year-old referred to as ‘Mark Rashford’.

Fans on Reddit were quick to point out the mistake and noticed the image used also featured the logo of rival Adidas, who signed a deal worth £750m to make the United kits in 2014.

It’s not the first clanger the Reds have been involved in. After Adidas signed their mega-deal with the club, promoting their leisure wear, the model could be seen wearing a United jacket paired with Premier League rivals Chelsea-branded trousers.

Rashford has been a Nike athlete for over a decade, signing his first contract with the giant when he was just 11 and extending their partnership in 2021.

In a topsy-turvy season for United, the winger has struggled to reach the heights he previously set and has been criticized for his performances in recent months. Despite the drop in form, caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick was defiant in his response to Rashford under the microscope.

He told ManUtd.com: “In Marcus Rashford we have another player [who I have] constantly been late and [will work] with, to develop it.

“We’ve seen that with other players in the past and I don’t see why it shouldn’t happen with Marcus. He’s got abundant talent, he’s got the pace, the physique. He’s got everything you need to a modern striker, not only if he plays from the wing or in the middle.”
