Manchester United duo of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood win North-West Impact Awards.
The 23-year old continues to draw recognition on and off the pitch after he landed the ‘North-West Impact’ award for his work contribution to the society. “Marcus Rashford has won the Impact Award for his work in combatting child food poverty.” As stated by The Manchester United official website.
Over the weekend, the Englishman helped the Red Devils secure a 3-1 away victory at Goodison. He will join his teammates for the international break after recovering from a shoulder injury suffered against Everton.
Marcus Rashford has been campaigning tirelessly for the government to provide free meals for vulnerable children during this winter break and finally found success and £400m funding from the goverment. As quoted by the man himself:
“I very much welcome the steps that have been taken to combat child food poverty in the UK.”
Aside from this, United No. 10 is in line to feature for the England National team against Ireland, Belgium and Iceland should he recover in time.
The English youngster won The Athletic’s Rising Star trophy.
Greenwood beat off competition from Tommy Doyle (Manchester City), Antonee Robinson (Wigan Athletic), Lewis Travis (Blackburn Rovers). Plus former United teammates Dwight McNeil (Burnley) and Josh Harrop (Preston North End). He has since been left out of the England National squad.
Mason Greenwood, earlier this season, opened his account in the UEFA Champions League against RB Leipzig. He has since not made the match day squad over illness as stated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He will hope to bounce back from his illness and take his time to recover and feature in the upcoming games.
