Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has hailed the passion of Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford for his efforts to fight against child hunger.
The Spaniard is delighted with Englishman’s good use of his fame and fortune for a good humanitarian cause.
Speaking to The Athletic, Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin said: “Marcus Rashford is a clear example of someone who went through that when he was young and was like, ‘No, I don’t want that to happen anymore’.
“He has the platform, he has the money. He is the clear example of what a football player, an athlete, a celebrity — whatever you want to call it — can do when you have passion and the drive to change the world.
“If you change one family’s life, you’ve changed the world. If you make life better for three people, that’s crazy. The fact he’s been able to do that for many millions across the UK… I have so much respect for what he did.”
Rashford played a key role in the UK government’s decision to extend the school meal voucher scheme through the summer.
The striker is now working with many of the UK’s biggest food brands in an attempt to tackle child hunger around the country.
