Marcos Rashford, last week has successfully campaigned for the government to change its policy on the establishment of a $149 million COVID summer food fund- a change which will benefit over 1.3 million children in the UK.
Speaking on a virtual interview ahead of Sunday’s Merseyside derby against Everton, the German specialist said ” Marcus Rashford, I have to say, I couldn’t respect more what you did – it’s unbelievable”.
” Although it’s a bit of shame you had to do it, but still unbelievable that you did it. It really shows that a person, not alone, but with his name and effort can change really important things. We are all part of society and we are all involved in that.”
The death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd who died in the US under the US police custody in may has raised protests around the world and the premier league has followed suit in showing its support for the ‘ Black Lives Matter’ movement.
Since the return of the premier league on Wednesday, every players and officials take a knee before kick off, while names have been replaced by ‘ Black Lives Matter’ on the back of shirts.
