Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson has hailed Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford ahead of Sunday’s crucial Premier League clash.
Robertson, 26, has spent four-years with Liverpool after making a £8.1m switch from Hull City, as per Transfermarkt.
During his time in Merseyside, the talented left-back has gone on to become of the league’s most highly-rated attacking defenders as well as having a huge hand in lifting four major trophies.
However, Robertson is currently preparing to face-off against arch-rivals United, in a game which could see Liverpool bridge the three-point gap on league leaders United, or see the Red Devils extend their lead to six-points.
Despite the significance of Sunday’s match, speaking ahead the game, Robertson has been quick to draw attention to rival Rashford’s off-field social projects.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 12-months you will know that Rashford is working tirelessly off the field to help eradicate social issues such as child hunger.
“Marcus has done incredible work,” Robertson said in Liverpool’s pre-match programme (as quoted by MEN). “I think footballers past and present have always been socially conscious.
“Perhaps there is a bigger platform for our voices to be heard now, but we know that we’re very fortunate in the position that we’re in and we know that we can help people who are maybe in less fortunate positions.
“I do believe in levelling that gap.”
United are set to travel to Anfield where they will kick-off against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds at 4.30pm UK time on Sunday.
