Marcus Rashford draws praise from Sir Alex Ferguson for his achievements

Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford has been praised by the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, for his recent achievements in the drive against food poverty.

Rashford has twice successfully convinced the UK government to extend their free school meals program despite threats to the contrary, while partnering with FareShare UK to raise millions to feed poor children across the European country.

His actions have earned him numerous awards and recognition, and Sir Alex has revealed he’s delighted and proud.

When asked to share some advice with the 23 year old recently, the former Man United coach said, “I think he should be giving me some advice because what he’s doing at 23 years of age, is fantastic for a young person.

“I’ve no need to tell Marcus because I think there’s humility in the way he lives his life, his feet are on the ground. These are great qualities to carry you through life, there’s no question about that”.

He added, “And the football hasn’t changed him. There’s a danger in football that it can change people. Money can change people. Stardom can change people.

“Getting to a position in life sometimes can be a problem because not everyone can carry success but, at the moment, Marcus is doing that very, very well.”
