Harry Maguire & Marcus Rashford were caught in a heated, explicit exchange of words vs Crystal Palace
The details of a heated back and forth between Manchester United pair Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford during the club’s meeting with Crystal Palace last night have since taken centre stage online.
