Boy, 9, pens sweet letter to Marcus Rashford telling him ‘don’t be sad’
The Metro says: A young boy has penned a heart-warming letter to Marcus Rashford after England’s agonising penalty shootout defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.
Dexter Rosier wrote to the footballer after being inspired by his campaign to secure free school meals for youngsters during the pandemic.
The nine-year-old said he hopes the Manchester United star ‘won’t be sad for long’, telling him he ‘will always be a hero’ in his eyes.
Rashford’s mural in Withington was defaced after his penalty miss, while he, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho were all subject to vile racist abuse online in the wake of their misses from the spot.
