Marcus Rashford's mural in Manchester was vandalised less than an hour after his penalty miss in the Euro 2020 final shootout vs Italy.
Rashford was one of three England players, along with Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, to miss penalties as Italy won at Wembley.
All three men were on the receiving end of disgusting racist abuse on social media following the end of the game and the morons continued their awful behaviour away from social media.
The mural of Rashford in Withington was scrawled over with writing in blue paint not long after his missed penalty.
The writing is almost unreadable over the black and white painting but clearly says "F**k Sancho," and "B***ard," whilst there is also a drawing of a penis.
After he missed the pen I thought I'd check it out anyway. There were a group of young people disgusted by the freshly painted graffiti. pic.twitter.com/fXPYXBEVWF- Josie Le Vay (@josielevay) July 11, 2021
At just 23-years-old Rashford has done more for his community and his country than the worthless idiots who defaced the mural have or will ever do.
The fact that he missed a shot in a football game, no matter how 'important' that football game is, does not in anyway diminish how wonderful a young man he is.
If you cannot take defeat in a football match without racially abusing someone, or defacing a tribute to them, then perhaps the sport isn't for you.
In the past year, Rashford has made the government u-turn on their policy of feeding underprivileged children in school holidays, not once but twice.
He also started a book club to get young people reading more and brought out a kids book called '"How to Be the Best You Can Be," which teaches kids to be comfortable being themselves and how to dream big.
His charity work made him the youngest ever person to top the Sunday Times' Giving List and he spoke out passionately against the European Super League.
All this whilst scoring 11 times in the Premier League and providing nine assists for United and helping lead England to the Euro 2020 final.
And this is a man you want to abuse. I fear that may say more about you than him!
