Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford admits that his teammate and frequent holiday buddy Jesse Lingard made a mistake in posting a controversial video that was filmed while the pair were on holiday together.

Supposedly, the video Lingard published to his over 6 million Instagram followers was done on accident back on June 19 while on vacation in Miami, Florida. The video, which included footage of a friend named Jamal Branker simulating sex with a pillow, has drawn a ton of backlash online. You can view it below:

Rashford kept his commentary on the topic to a minimum, but he did say that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to pull him aside to have a conversation about it.

“I haven’t spoken to the manager about it,” said Rashford. “From what I saw of it, people have to understand that he was enjoying his holiday and it was a mistake.”

“There’s not really much I can say about that.”

Rashford, Lingard and the rest of United have now headed to Australia to begin their preseason tour in preparation of the upcoming season.
