Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford was today asked if he could leave the Premier League club, MySportDab reports.
Rashford said that he wants to stay at Manchester United for the rest of his football career.
The England star said this shortly after winning the Sports Journalists’ Association’s (SJA) Sport for Social Change Award today, after his efforts in 2020 in the fight against child food poverty.
In October 2020, the 23-year-old became an MBE after being announced as of those on the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.
He has been highly praised for his child food poverty campaign which made the government give 1.3million children free school meal vouchers during the COVID-19 crisis.
During the interview today, Rosenthal asked Rashford if he could ever play for any team other than Manchester United.
He said: “For me I am not looking beyond Manchester United. As a child, I always had Manchester United in my mind and it won’t be right for me to pull on another shirt.
“I always want to do the best for the club while I’m here, so hopefully I’m here for the long-term project.”
However, Rashford also said that without United’s support over the past years, he would never be where he is today.
He added: “All the things that have accomplished this year, it’s from Manchester United giving me an opportunity as a kid.
“I don’t only remember the last five years. I’m talking about when nobody in my family drove and I must be at training.
“United made people come and take me to the training ground and return back home when I was very young.
“I’m talking about when they put me in accommodation when we were struggling at home, from 11 years old to 16 or 17.
“So it’s a deeper than what people see. People only see what’s been happening since I got into the first team.”
Rashford remains a key player for both club and country and he will hope for glory at next summer’s European Championships.
