Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp praises Rashford’s ‘incredible’ work to help underprivileged families

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp uses his pre-match press conference this morning to praise the brilliant work of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

The German coach admitted that he couldn’t respect Rashford’s work for a wonderful cause any more, with the England international putting up an ‘incredible’ fight for the underprivileged who live in the UK.

Rashford’s work has led to the Government performing a U-turn to pledge an extra £120m to ensure that no children go hungry during this difficult time for families across England.

As someone who relied on food banks as a child living in Manchester, Rashford saw the injustice and used his platform to speak out.

Of course, rivals should be put aside in cases like this and it’s not difficult for anyone to see that Rashford is a wonderful human being. Liverpool’s Twitter account praised the United forward just a couple of days ago too.

See Klopp’s quote on Rashford below, as per Melissa Reddy of The Independent:

Hopefully more footballers can join in and do more things like this. The positive way in which Rashford used his voice against the Government should inspire others!
