Delighted fan is full of praise for Marcus Rashford after meeting Manchester United star

Still got time for his fans...

Simon Lloyd

You could forgive Marcus Rashford for having a bit of an ego.

At the tender age of 19 years, he is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in world football after exploding on to the scene for Manchester United in 2016.

Given a chance to start a Europa League game against Midtjylland after a late injury to Anthony Martial, Rashford helped himself to two goals – doing exactly the same on his Premier League debut against Arsenal only days later.

Since then, he’s become a regular in the England squad – marking his first Three Lions appearance with a goal – and helped United to victories in FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League finals.

Despite all of this, he’s still got time for his fans…

With his first full season in the United first team under his belt, Rashford has been relaxing in Miami with teammate, Jesse Lingard. While Premier League footballers can go largely unnoticed in the States, it seems Rashford failed to escape the attention of one adoring fan.

As the tweet below shows, Rashford posed for a photograph alongside the man, who is believed to be from Brazil.

Clearly delighted at being pictured alongside his idol, the man later remarked how humble the talented footballer is.

And yes, of course we know.
