Marcus Rashford debunks Daily Mail for ill reporting
Manchester United's striker Marcus Rashford has called out British news site Daily Mail for an ill report which they linked his new houses to money donated by people for his free meal project.
The 23-year-old striker bought three new houses recently in a fee estimated to be around £1.5 million including a new estate in Wilmslow, Cheshire, a house and flat in Macclesfield.
The houses were bought in a space of three months just the exact time Rashford ran a donation campaign for a free meal project which was targeted to feed over 1.7 million school children in Uk who cannot afford money for their meals.

Daily Mail went on to link the money for the new houses to the money donated for the free meal campaign with the title " What a result! Campaigning football star Marcus Rashford has bought five luxury homes worth more than £2million".
Rashford on seeing this had called out the news site through his Twitter handle to stop such an ill reporting which they direct towards tarnishing someone's image.
"Ok, so let’s address this. I’m 23. I came from little. I need to protect not just my future but my family’s too, " Rashford said.
"To do that I made a decision at the beg of 2020 to start investing more in property. Please don’t run stories like this alongside refs to ‘campaigning’.
Marcus Rashford's free meal campaign has earned him Members of the British Empire title due to his hard work in seeing that children are feed well
Rashford's campaign had already forced UK's Prime minister Boris Johnson who earlier refused to offer a free meal to school children in the country to make a U-turn and donate some money for the project.
The campaign also included many individuals that have donated lots of money and many restaurants that have offered to run a free meal for school children in December.
Many footballers and fans have praised Rashford for his great effort in seeing that the less privileged got a free meal since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020.
Is Daily Mail trying to tarnish the image of someone that has donated his time trying to feed the poor once or are they trying to stop the free meal by demoralising him? What is your say on this?
