Marcus Rashford recognised on Football Black List 2021.
Marcus Rashford, Manchester United and England forward, has been recognised on a list of the UK’s most influential black football players for 2021.
The annual Football Black List website says: “The Football Black List shines a light on those who are inspiring the next generation to consider other roles in the sport.”
The list was created in 2008 and highlights black industry professionals who have created a positive impact.
23-year-old Rashford has earned huge praise for his work around child food poverty in the UK.
The people recognised in the seven categories are decided by experts, with representatives from the Premier League, Professional Footballers’ Association, League Managers’ Association, EFL and anti-racism group Kick It Out.
Leon Mann, co-founder of the Football Black List, said: “Black excellence in football is regularly talked about on the pitch – and we want to help highlight the contribution of black leaders off the field in the sport, too.”
“This list of influential game-changers is a snapshot of the contribution black communities are making to football.”
“Those named today join an illustrious group who have featured on the list over the last decade – including the likes of Raheem Sterling, Ian Wright, Hope Powell, Rio Ferdinand, Herman Ouseley and Rachel Yankey.”
