Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford has come out to blast those criticizing his personal endorsements. He recently revealed that he doesn’t understand why people always look for an ulterior motive when it comes to charity work.
According to him, he really doesn’t need to partner with brands, and he actually does that to contribute the fee he’ll receive to his charity funds.
Rashford added that the earlier we forget these ulterior motives and focus on doing the right thing, the better for us all.
His words, “Just heard @spectator are planning to run a story on me tomorrow about how I have benefitted commercially in the last 18 months,”
“To clarify, I don’t need to partner with brands. I partner because I want to progress the work I do off the pitch and most of any fee I would receive contributes to that.”
“Last summer, 1.3M children had access to food support, through my relationship with Burberry children have a safe place to be after school where they will be fed, following the November investment vulnerable children have safe places to go this summer holiday, and due to my relationship with Macmillan 80,000 children now have a book to call their own.”
“Do I have a larger commercial appeal following the u-turns? I’m sure. But I’m also a Manchester United and England international footballer. Why has there always got to be a motive? Why can’t we just do the right thing?”
