"Man Utd coaches never knew i usually don't eat to training" - Marcus Rashford opens up on being hungry while growing

Footballer Marcus Rashford reveals how only those closest to him knew that his family sometimes struggled for food when he was growing up in a new documentary.

The Manchester United star, 23, has spoken about how his family did not always have an evening meal on the table, despite his mother Melanie working full-time in a bid to support her children. 


He wrote in a letter to Boris Johnson: ‘As a family, we relied on breakfast clubs, free school meals and the kind acts of neighbours… Food banks and soup kitchens were not alien to us.’ 

In new documentary Marcus Rashford: Feeding Britain’s Children, the footballer explains his Manchester United youth teammates and coaches did not appreciate the full extent of the family’s situation. 

The player joined the Manchester United academy system at just seven years old. 

‘The people closest to me obviously knew the situation that me and my family were going through but things like my teammates, the coaches, they never really quite understood what we were going through,’ he says on the documentary, which airs tonight. 


‘There were times when there wasn’t any food there and you’d just go to sleep. It should never be normal for somebody to feel how I felt.’
