Marcus Rashford awarded MBE for school meals work

Rashford struggles on the pitch

It has been a tough few months for Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

Missing a penalty in the Euro 2020 final shootout, he then went under the knife for a shoulder injury that had been giving him pain for much of 2021.

As such, he is yet to complete 90 minutes of football at a competitive level this season, although he did net against Tottenham from the substitutes bench.

His lack of match sharpness has also seen him pull out of the England squad in order to work on his fitness in Manchester during this international break, meaning that he will not join up with his compatriots for the key clashes against Albania and San Marino.

Manchester United and their faithful following will be hoping that he can get back to his best after the international fixtures, but that has not stopped him off the pitch.

Off the pitch the young star continues to excel

Now, despite being unable to attend international duty, Rashford has continued to hit the headlines. This time, it is due to the MBE (Member of the British Empire) that has been awarded to him for his charitable endeavours.

He has been working to ensure that children around the country are still able to get free school meals, but says that there is still plenty to be done.
