Marcus Rashford would prefer to stick to football. The reason he can’t falls on the UK Government.
Preventing child hunger should be on the top of every country’s priority list.
What does it say about the current UK government that a 22-year-old footballer is leading to way to protect the nation’s people? The work that should be carried out by the most senior politicians.
Rashford does his bit for charity and leads by example on the pitch. He’s a model footballer who Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson thinks deserves a standing ovation at Anfield of all places, as per The Times.
The Manchester United forward tweeted a series of tweets on Friday, initially sharing an iNews article urging Ministers to extend free school meals to all holidays to cover a predicted rise in hunger in October half-term and at Christmas.
Rashford’s last tweet on Friday was a sign off, stating: “Anyway, I’m off to ‘stick to my football’. Have a good weekend everyone. (6)”
On Saturday, Rashford scored Manchester United’s 10,000th goal in all competitions before adding to Friday’s Twitter thread with a picture of his goal to silence the critics out there.

Rashford still gets criticism online but the way in which he carries himself on and off the pitch is admirable.
Every step he takes is one forward.
