The England international was absent from training at United on Friday due to illness and was not included in Sunday’s 4-2 FA Cup victory over Newport.
In an official statement, United confirmed that the matter has been handled internally and is now closed. However, Rashford has returned to training and will be eligible for selection in United’s upcoming Premier League match against Wolves on Thursday.
Manager Erik ten Hag addressed the situation by stating that Rashford reported ill and the rest of the matter will be dealt with internally. On the same day, Rashford trained at Carrington. The issue was handled by Ten Hag, football director John Murtough, and interim chief executive Patrick Stewart.
Rashford was present at the training ground on Monday, accompanied by his brother Dwaine, who is part of his representative team. This is not the first time Rashford has faced disciplinary issues with the club this season. In November, he was dropped from the starting line-up for the Carabao Cup fourth-round defeat against Newcastle as a disciplinary measure.
Ten Hag expressed his dissatisfaction with Rashford being spotted celebrating his birthday at a prominent Manchester nightclub shortly after a disappointing 3-0 loss to Manchester City.
Additionally, Rashford was benched for United’s Premier League game against Wolves last season after oversleeping and arriving late for a team meeting. However, he went on to score the winning goal after coming on as a substitute. Despite his previous successes, Rashford has only managed to score four goals for United this season, a significant decline compared to his career-best of 30 goals last season.
