Sir Alex Ferguson has paid an emotional tribute to Marcus Rashford after the Manchester United forward was honoured at the Football Writers' Association annual tribute awards.

"I have known him since being a kid of 7 years of age, and seen him develop through the ranks of Manchester United into a truly wonderful person.

The 23-year-old has become the youngest ever recipient of the FWA tribute in recognition of his work to fight child poverty during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"I would like to congratulate Marcus on his achievement and presentation (of the FWA Tribute Award) tonight," Ferguson stated.

"Apart from his football life, what he has achieved in the last few months is quite astonishing, how he has helped the people in need is a truly amazing achievement.

Earlier this month the United forward used his personal social media profiles to criticise the 'unacceptable' food packages being sent to families, pressuring a government review of the way charity funding was being spent.

Rashford has utilised his platform to raise awareness about child poverty in the UK and teamed up with food waste charity FareShare to deliver meals to children who were no longer receiving free school meals.
