Manchester United star, Marcus Rashford has revealed how the club allowed him to join the academy at a younger age than his peers after his mum explained her poverty situation to club administrators, in a touching letter posted by Rashford on his Twitter page.

 

Rashford also urged UK politicians not to stop a food voucher scheme by next month, which was set up to guarantee meals to children when schools were shut down in March, because he had issues with eating well while growing up due to his mother’s financial situation.

Rashford, Manchester United’s highest goalscorer this season, has helped charity FareShare reach a goal of supplying three million meals to vulnerable children in the United Kingdom .

 

He said:

Manchester United allowed him to join their academy programmes one year younger than he should after his mother let them know of tough circumstances with feeding and accommodation at home.

“My mum was a single parent, she had five kids all living in the same house. The programme that I started at 11 years old, you’re supposed to start it at 12 years old,” he said.

“It basically gives you accommodation closer to the training facilities and a new school and she worked that hard to push it forward because she knew that was a step I needed to take.

“I needed to be eating the right food as I was growing, I needed to be close to my team-mates, my new school and my new school friends. She made that decision when I was 11 years old and United allowed it.

“That was the reason I ended up going at a younger age to the others, it was to help my mum with her situation and also get me out of the situation we were in. So there is always a big element of sacrifice to get to the top level and that’s the one we had to make.”

“My mum, she did the best she could, we used to go to a shop called Pound World and everything was under a pound,” he added. “We would schedule out the week, we would get seven yoghurts and you could have one yoghurt a day and so on. She did the best she could within the circumstances.

“There are some families out there, like mine, that have four or five kids and it is literally impossible for her to take control of the situation.

“This is all going on at a time when kids should be concentrating on school work and stuff like that. It is crazy to think this is still going on in 2020 and it’s something I don’t believe should be happening.”

Meek Mill Declares He Is “Looking For BIA”


Meek Mill didn’t reveal why or for what, after he declares he is looking for BIA.

BIA rose into stardom after “Whole Lotta Money” and its remix featuring Nicki Minaj.

And despite criticism about her Met Gala look and supposedly underwhelming BET Hip Hop Awards “Whole Lotta Money” performance, BIA has taken it all within stride and has clearly caught the attention of some of her peers in the rap game.

Nicki Minaj blew Drake‘s cover a couple of months ago after she revealed that the Toronto rapper had allegedly been texting her all night asking about BIA and now Minaj’s ex, Meek Mill, has made it clear he’s interested in linking up with her.

Fans obviously jumped to the thought that Meek is romantically interested in BIA but it was pointed out that on the ASAP Ferg-assisted “Me (FMW) you can hear the classic Lil Jon “BIA BIA” sample. Meek’s tweet, combined with the “BIA BIA” sample, have led fans to believe that a possible remix between the “Dreams & Nightmares” rapper and BIA is on the way.

Check back to SKINNYGIST.COM for a possible collaboration and in the meantime, let us know if you’d be excited for a potential Meek Mill x BIA record in the future.

As the criticism continues, Coi has been labeled a “TikTok artist” by some of her haters, but that’s not a term that she would necessarily associate with. Instead, she wants to be called a “Billboard artist,” because all of her songs are hits.

Coi Leray Tweeted that;

“Believe it or not, I make hits,”

“Been a great year …. Wait until y’all hear this twinnem remix it’s over.”

Somebody Tagged her a “TikTok artist” then she replies saying…

“Tik tok artist goes straight to billboard every time so call me a billboard artist whenever you wanna throw tik tok in there. I did it with out an album.”
