Marcus Rashford has taken his time to reply the letter a six-year-old Manchester United fan wrote to him as he once again showed class amid the coronavirus lockdown, Mirror reports.
Little Alex Jones who claims to be a fan of the 22-year-old striker wrote to the United forward that he misses playing football.
The UK and most countries are currently on the lockdown due to the rampaging coronavirus which has killed more than 55,000 people across the globe.
School children in Britain are off school at the moment and Alex is using his new free time to relate with his idol.
The letter reached Rashford’s mum who then delivered the message to her son on Twitter.
"To Marcus Rashford, my name is Alex Jones, age 6. I feel sad about football. You are my favourite player. Manchester United is my favourite team.
"Do you feel sad that football is finished and it is boring? Are you staying safe? Are you still injured? "I am missing playing football on the weekends with my team, Harefield United."
The player’s mother shared the note with her own Twitter followers while tagging the Manchester United star.
"Hi Alex, thanks for your lovely note. I am staying safe thank you," Rashford replied.
"Working hard, reading lots. I’m a bit sad about not playing football too."I hope you’re keeping up with your school work. Loving your PJs!
"Be a good boy for your mum and get to bed buddy."
Rashford seems to be a lover of children; he has been doing a lot to support kids during the coronavirus' lockdown.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the player has taken upon himself to deliver free meals to children as the spread of the dreaded coronavirus continues to ravage the globe.
The Manchester United striker who is currently recuperating from a lingering back injury is making judicious use of the suspension of the league to assist in local charity.
The 22-year-old is now using his free time to assist charity FreeShare in delivering food to children within the locality as well as families who rely on free school meals.
The free school meal program has been suspended following the shutdown of all schools in Britain due to the rampaging coronavirus.
The player shared an emotional experience saying he was toughed having being in such a position as a child as well.
