Backlash for BBC bosses as Rashford set to be snubbed for Sports Personalty award

It’s been a huge year for Marcus Rashford. Aside from any on-pitch exploits for Manchester United and England, the striker has lead the way for a campaign aimed at eradicating child hunger.

Having already pressured the Government when it comes to the lack of money being spent on some of the most vulnerable in society, there could be a second U-turn thanks to Rashford’s determined messages across social media.

He received an MBE for his services to charity work during the pandemic, but he has unfinished business to do…

According to the Daily Mail, Rashford is set to be snubbed for the Sports Personality of the Year.

The outlet note that the BBC are wary of a potential backlash should Rashford not be honoured in some way.

I’m sure the only honours Rashford cares about are the ones that see United successful. Winning BBC Sports Personality of the Year would be a huge individual achievement, and one we think the United star deserves.

Rashford’s work off the pitch over the past year and seen him featured on the cover of Vogue magazine too.
