Breaking News ! Sir Alex Ferguson has paid an emotional tribute to Marcus Rashford after the Manchester United forward was honoured at the Football Writers' Association annual tribute awards. The 23-year-old has become the youngest ever recipient of the FWA tribute in recognition of his work to fight child poverty during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Rashford has utilised his platform to raise awareness about child poverty in the UK and teamed up with food waste charity FareShare to deliver meals to children who were no longer receiving free school meals. Earlier this month the United forward used his personal social media profiles to criticise the 'unacceptable' food packages being sent to families, pressuring a government review of the way charity funding was being spent. As well as his work around child hunger Rashord also used his profile to question the government's plans of removing a Universal Credit payment uplift, while he also supported a campaign to get children reading as part of World Book Day. Even with all his commitments away from the pitch Rashford has excelled on it - enjoying his best ever goal scoring season for United as they finished third in the Premier League last year. "I would like to congratulate Marcus on his achievement and presentation (of the FWA Tribute Award) tonight," Ferguson stated.
