Who are Marcus Rashford’s parents? Where did the Man Utd star go to school? – The Sun

MARCUS RASHFORD has written a poignant letter to MPs asking them to provide free school meals over the summer to allow vulnerable children.

However, the Department of Education said that they would not reverse their decision.

Rashford rose through the ranks at Man Utd, earning a first-team spot whilst supporting his family.

Below is a breakdown of the earlier years of his life…

Who are Rashford's parents?

Robert and Melanie Rashford are the parents of 22-year-old Marcus Rashford.

He's previously opened up about how his mum helped his career by pushing for him to be signed up to Manchester United's academy before he was 12.

"It basically gives you accommodation closer to the training facilities and a new school and she worked that hard to push it forward because she knew that was a step I needed to take," he said.

"I needed to be eating the right food as I was growing, I needed to be close to my team-mates, my new school and my new school friends.''

Rashford has also described how his mum would do their weekly food shop at Pound World, in order to ration food supplies over seven days.

"That was the reason I ended up going [to Man Utd] at a younger age to the others, it was to help my mum with her situation and also get me out of the situation we were in," he added.

Where did he go to school?

Rashford grew up in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

He attended Button Lane Primary School, where the number of children who receive free school meals is twice the national average.

Before he joined the United academy he played for Fletcher Moss Rangers.

Although, his initial plea was rejected, the campaign is picking up speed and has been supported by MPs and other footballers alike.
