I got my ass whooped by Marcus Rashford on his debut… I'd never even heard of the Man Utd star | The Sun
A FORMER FC Midtjyland player has admitted that he got his “ass whooped” by Marcus Rashford on the forward’s famous debut – and that he “had never heard of” of the ace.
It was the seven-year anniversary three days ago since the hotshot burst onto the scene as an 18-year-old with a brace against FC Midtjyland in the Europa League.
Rashford was handed his opportunity after Anthony Martial was injured in the warm-up as the Red Devils aimed to bounce back from a 2-1 first leg deficit.
The star took full advantage to score twice inside 12 minutes in front of the Stretford End in a memorable 5-1 win and has not looked back since.
However, one man who is sick of hearing about that unforgettable night is Tim Sparv, who captained FC Midtjylland at old Trafford.
The former Finnish international midfielder, 36, previously took to Twitter in 2020 to reply to a United post celebrating the anniversary.

He wrote: “Every year, like clockwork! This must be bordering on bullying soon.”
That led to a response from Rashford himself, who wrote: “Haha sorry bro, it’s all love.”
Now the retired Sparv, who had a three-year spell at Southampton as a youngster, has responded again after a clip was shared of Rashford’s scoring exploits on the anniversary again.
He wrote: “It’s been seven years since I got my ass whooped by a guy I had never heard of.”

Rashford is still proving to be the scourge of defenders across Europe with his exploits for United both domestically and in the Europa League.
He had a shot deflected into the Newcastle net as United claimed the Carabao Cup at Wembley on Sunday.
Despite that initially going down as an own goal, he has now officially been credited with it.
And that means that his record since returning from England duty at the World Cup has outshone stars such as Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.
He has bagged 17 goals since December, taking his total to a career-best 25 for the campaign.
