Very well said… not that Marcus Rashford owes the rag that is the Daily Mail an explanation.
The Manchester United forward has spoken out after a ridiculous article appeared on the Daily Mail website, written by Andy Buckwell and Max Aitchison, outlining how he has brought five new houses worth an excessive amount of money.
As editor, I have chosen not to link to the article in this piece but you will see the headline below via a screenshot attached to Rashford’s tweet. They get enough clicks they don’t deserve for such stories!
“Ok, so let’s address this,” Rashford tweeted. “I’m 23. I cam from little. I need to protect not just my future but my family’s too. To do that I made a decision at the beg of 2020 to start investing more in property. Please don’t run stories like like this alongside refs to ‘campaigning’.”

Someone like Rashford should be celebrated by everyone in the UK – for all his work to help vulnerable children throughout the pandemic.
But not the Daily Mail, who have a record for this sort of thing.
Remember when Raheem Sterling famously posted a statement to Instagram, exposing the tabloid for their differing coverage of two Manchester City players’ spending habits, selflessly ignoring the coverage that he had received himself from the tabloid press for years?

Credit to Rashford for speaking out but he really shouldn’t need to.
