Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho has congratulated Manchester United striker, Marcus Rashford for his successful free school meals campaign ahead of both side’s Premier League clash on Friday night.
Rashford’s campaign for children in England to receive free school meals outside of term period amid the COVID-19 pandemic prompted a U-turn from the UK Government earlier this week.
The 22-year-old England international made a personal plea, as well as an open letter to British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
Around 1.3 million school children in England will now benefit as a result of the new decision.
Reacting to the development, Mourinho, who coached Rashford during his time at Old Trafford, heaped praises on the forward, adding that he has now become a man with principles.
