Marcus Rashford hits back at magazine on Twitter ahead of story release

Marcus Rashford has fired back at The Spectator after learning of an article due to be published on Wednesday. The 23-year-old took to Twitter in frustration and offered his opinion on the debacle.

The Spectator, a weekly British magazine and is one of the most historic still going, is reportedly set to run a story on Wednesday on Rashford’s commercial growth in 2020 and 2021, which includes deals with Burberry, Nike, and GQ.

Since taking on the government during the first lockdown over a year ago, Rashford has emerged as a target for politically involved officials after his successful free school meals campaign. Rashford defended himself on Twitter, as seen below.

Since his campaign in June 2020, the Manchester United winger has gone from strength to strength on and off the pitch, with details on his off-pitch set to be scrutinized by the magazine on Wednesday.

Perhaps lost on The Spectator, Rashford is a world-class footballer and commercial deals are rarely scarce. Regardless, the Wythenshawe-born forward is a role model to millions of children and is never involved in controversially charged debates – so why run with this agenda-driven story?
