Brilliant Letter Shows Marcus Rashford Predicted Rise To The Top At Age 11
14 months after making his debut against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League, 19-year-old Marcus Rashford has gone from strength to strength following on from that memorable day in February, 2016.
Rashford has certainly established himself as an important member of the Manchester United squad, and eight years ago, the confident youngster predicted his destiny in a letter he wrote as a 11-year-old child.
At the age of 19, Rashford has already used his £25,000-a-week wages to good use by moving his mum and two brothers into a luxury £800,000 house, making him a respected figure off the pitch and this latest social media post has once again shown his humble side.
Marcus tweeted the following letter alongside a picture of him as a youngster.
"I want to have a different lifestyle and make my family and others proud of me. I only have one aim in life and that is to be a professional footballer, and hopefully at Manchester United."- Marcus Rashford, aged 11

Not only has Rashford made over 35 first team appearances for Manchester United since February 2016, but the youngster has also shown promise on the international stage, becoming the third youngest Englishman to score on his debut.
The lad from Wythenshawe really has developed into a true professional, both on and off the pitch.
His dream of becoming a professional footballer came true, thanks to hard work and talent. Simple really...
