Liverpool Fans Discuss Marcus Rashford Banner At Anfield Before Manchester United Game

Liverpool Fans Discuss Marcus Rashford Banner At Anfield Before Manchester United Game

Liverpool fans are debating the idea of a Marcus Rashford banner at Anfield for this Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester United.

Any proposed banner would be in honour of Rashford's ongoing campaigning during lockdown, putting pressure on the UK government to provide meals for vulnerable children.

"Have any Liverpool fan groups arranged for a banner to be on the Kop this weekend for Marcus Rashford?" asked one LFC fan on Twitter, before suggesting a message:

"Hunger has no colours. Thank you, Marcus."

Football fans, no matter their club, have generally been united in their support of the 23-year-old as he has persisted in drawing attention to the plight of disadvantaged families during the pandemic. On Wednesday, Rashford spoke to prime minister Boris Johnson after concern at the poor quality of food hampers.

However, the idea of a banner in tribute to Manchester United's star attacker at the home of their fiercest rivals naturally provoked a mixed reaction among Liverpool fans.

"Done some great stuff, but the day we put a United player banner on the Kop is the day I stop watching football," replied one Liverpool fan.

"Can't believe some of the replies to this: 'I'll support the kids but just don't let it get in the way of my footy' - that's what they sound like," countered another.

"Very much in support of Marcus Rashford and what he's doing off the pitch and I give him my full support to him off the field. But no, Anfield is our temple and I will never support a banner in the Kop for a player of our biggest rivals," came one reply.

The match on Sunday is an absolutely massive one in the context of the Premier League season. Man United sit top of the table, three points above champions Liverpool after a 1-0 win against Burnley on Tuesday.

Nonetheless @TimD2704's original tweet gained over 1,000 likes in just a few hours.

Could we really see a banner in tribute of Rashford's magnificent off-the-field efforts? Or is that simply not possible given the rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool?

Let us know in the comments.
