Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford’s work towards the crisis of child hunger has won hearts not only in Manchester but all over England.
The proof of this is in the fact that as United get ready to face off against their traditional rivals Liverpool this weekend, a proposal is being discussed among fans to arrange for a banner to dedicate to Rashford at Anfield.
The idea, as per a report from Sun, was first proposed by a Twitter user named Tim, who said that Rashford deserves to be applauded for his work.
The suggestion by the Liverpool fan, as per the report, has garnered mixed reactions from fans, with some saying that Rashford should definitely receive a public appreciation for his work, others against the idea of celebrating a rival player.
In the larger context of things, the work Rashford has done should be appreciated beyond football rivalries, and if the only reason for not arranging a banner for the England footballer is because of the animosity between the two clubs, then it would be disappointing.
Earlier this week, Rashford had announced that he had a positive conversation with Prime Minister Boris Johnson who promised to take stock of the “unacceptable” free school meal hampers provided to families.
The United striker, in December, was named the inaugural winner of the FIFA Foundation award for his charity work, and he has already twice forced the government to change their stance on policy measures regarding free school meals.
These acts of Rashford are beyond football and if Liverpool fans celebrate the 23-year-old for the work that he has done away from the football field by arranging a banner at Anfield, it would just be a small token of appreciation for the footballer.
