Marcus Rashford has thanked the artist who painted a mural of him near to where he grew up.
Manchester street artist Akse showcased the artwork on the side of Coffee House Cafe in Copson Street, Withington, Manchester.
Rashford has inspired so many people in the UK in recent months, as well as forcing the Government into a second U-turn last season in his fight to stop child food poverty.
The United forward tweeted an image of the mural with a “thank you”.
Ok I usually get embarrassed sharing these things because this journey was never really about me but I know this took a lot of time and effort @Akse_P19 and I wanted to say thank you ♥️ pic.twitter.com/alGcHW0gXH

According to BBC News, the artwork was done in collaboration with Withington Walls, a community street art project. The report adds that Rashford’s mother provided the quote one the mural, which read: “Take pride in knowing that your struggle will play the biggest role in your purpose.”
It’s a great concept and every involved executed it perfectly.
