Marcus Rashford mural is set to go up in London

A new mural of Manchester United star Marcus Rashford is set to go up in London with construction now underway.

The 23-year-old has had quite a rise to the top of English football with the Red Devils and yet surprisingly, many believe he still has a lot of potential left to showcase.

The last twelve months have been particularly fascinating for Rashford with the COVID-19 pandemic playing a key role in that. Alongside his performances for Manchester United, Marcus was also lightheartedly dubbed the “leader of the opposition” for his activism in securing free school meals for children in their time during the lockdown.

The man of the moment

He went on to take part in Euro 2020 with England, during which he missed a crucial penalty in the final shootout against Italy at Wembley.

This prompted a great deal of racial abuse that was directed towards Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, with the end result being an almighty outpouring of love and appreciation for the trio from the nation.

Now, he’s set to be honoured with yet another mural – this time in the capital.

It reads “just look at what we can do when we come together”, signifying the fantastic support he’s received in recent months and beyond.

The hope from the United faithful is that he can use all of this as further fuel and motivation in the club’s pursuit of another title push in the Premier League this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will attempt to keep their strong start to the campaign going when they meet Southampton this weekend.
