Arsenal star Holding reveals Man Utd rival Rashford texted him to apologise for ACL injury

ARSENAL defender Rob Holding was contacted by Marcus Rashford to apologise after he suffered a serious knee injury against Manchester United.

The defender ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament after an innocuous clash with the United striker in the 2-2 draw last December at Old Trafford.

Holding, 23, is on his way back to full fitness but revealed Rashford got in touch to apologise for his injury and wish him a full and speedy recovery.

He told Arsenal Player: “Marcus text me when the injury came out of what I’d done.

“He just dropped me a text and just said ‘hi mate, I’m sorry to hear about the injury, I didn’t mean it in any malicious way’.

“I didn’t take it as a personal attack on me, it’s just football.

“So I just replied to him ‘yeah mate, don’t worry about it – it’s football.'

“'You didn’t even make a tackle you just sort of ran into me!'
