Andy Robertson Backs Marcus Rashford To Be The First Manchester United Player To Get Standing Ovation At Anfield

Andy Robertson Backs Marcus Rashford To Be The First Manchester United Player To Get Standing Ovation At Anfield

Andy Robertson has claimed that Marcus Rashford could be the first Manchester United player to get a standing ovation from Liverpool fans at Anfield.

The rivalry between Liverpool and United is as strong as ever, despite the Premier League champions finishing an incredible 33 points clear of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team last season.

Liverpool's first league title in 30 years was also their 19th overall, meaning they are now only one behind their fierce rivals from down the M62, as they try to take back the perch.

However despite all that, Anfield fan favourite Robertson things that Rashford's charity work, and his impact in getting school meals extended into the summer, could lead to him getting a standing ovation at Anfield.

"Even though I'm active, I believe I can do better," Robertson said about his own charity to The Times, "The two words that everyone's saying [during the pandemic] are 'Marcus Rashford'. He made politicians overturn the decision [not to extend free school meals] because he wanted every kid to get fed. What he's done was amazing, outstanding.

"Once the fans are back in, Marcus Rashford could be the first Man United player to get a standing ovation here. He'd definitely deserve it because thousands of families are getting fed now."

At the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown, health secretary Matt Hancock bizarrely criticised footballers and claimed they should 'do more' in terms of giving back to the community and the country.

And the Scotsman admitted he was annoyed by the suggestion, adding, "Yes, of course I was annoyed. What he said, he'd regret now. Hendo [Jordan Henderson] and all the captains set up that big fund for the NHS, and raised millions.

"We've been attacked but we've shown we're a profession that gives back to the community."

United don't visit Anfield until the middle of January, so there's still a chance that fans could be back in stadiums by then, but whether Rashford actually gets a standing ovation from the home remains to be seen.
