Heartwarming notes of support left on Marcus Rashford mural to be saved
The Metro says: Hundreds of touching messages of support left on the mural of Marcus Rashford will be saved with the hopes of putting them on display.
The outpouring of love and solidarity came after the south Manchester artwork was vandalised with racist graffiti within hours of England’s crushing defeat against Italy in the Euros.
Rashford, who was visibly distraught when he missed a penalty, also faced on onslaught of racism online, along with teammates Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka.
Locals moved quickly to conceal the offensive graffiti with bin bags and before long, it was covered in paper hearts, England flags, flowers, poems and heartwarming messages of support for the striker.
