‘The news you got yesterday was probably not what you wanted to hear,’ Rashford wrote on Twitter. ‘I know all you want to do is play because I’m the same but the decision has been made to protect everyone involved. This is bigger than football.

‘You might be feeling a bit low but the best thing you can do is pick up your ball and get out in the garden.

‘When I was in the academy I used to find a spot in the garden and aim for targets just so I could practice my accuracy, get creative!

‘Now is not the time to fall out of love with the game, it’s a time to remember why you fell in love with it in the first place. You’ve got this and we can’t wait to see you all back next season.’
