Many fans of football been surprised with 22 years old Manchester United star during the lockdown. 

Marcus Rashford might be 22 but become of the loudest voices in the Manchester United dressing room. The forward has been handed the number 10 jersey which was previously worn by club legend Wayne Rooney.

It's understandable that Rashford who is an academy graduate of the Old Trafford outfit is on the verge of writing his name in the history books of Manchester United.

Recall that last season saw the English international pick up double figures of goals in all competitions.

Its been reported that Marcus Rashford, has been awarded an MBE. This comes after the English international philanthropic services to vunerable children in the UK during the lockdown.

It would be recall that Rashford campaigned for the government to ensure that vulnerable children were given meals over the summer during the coronavirus lockdown.

Rashford released a statement via his social media space saying: "I'm incredibly honoured and humbled. As a young black man from Wythenshawe, never did I think I would be accepting an MBE, never mind an MBE at the age of 22. This is a very special moment for myself and my family, but particularly my mum who is the real deserving recipient of the honour.

"The fight to protect our most vulnerable children is far from over. I would be doing my community, and the families I have met and spoken with, an injustice if I didn't use this opportunity to respectfully urge the Prime Minister, who recommended me for this honour, to support our children during the October half term with an extension of the voucher scheme, as the furlough scheme comes to an end and we face increased unemployment. Another sticking plaster, but one that will give the parents of millions of children in the UK just one less thing to worry about.

"Let's stand together in saying that no children in the UK should be going to bed hungry. As I have said many times before, no matter your feeling or opinion, not having access to food is NEVER the child's fault."

Just so you know, according to Wikipedia, "MBE is the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is a British order of chivalry, rewarding contributions to the arts and sciences, work with charitable and welfare organisations, and public service outside the civil service."
