his mum was too busy working to make ends meet.
growing up on a tough housing estate, Marcus Rashford didn’t realize other children were read bedtime stories
until he saw it in movies.

it was a normal thing for somebody to be read a bedtime story. “It’s something I’d only seen in films.
But films are films, not reality.”

which he credits with helping shape his character.

zeal to encouraging youngsters to read by setting up his own book club.
