Liverpool fans react on Twitter amid speculation of unfurling a Marcus Rashford banner at Anfield
Marcus Rashford could become the first Manchester United player to see his banner unfurled at Anfield this Sunday.
A section of Liverpool fans on Twitter have mooted the possibility of honouring the Manchester United star for his efforts in combating child hunger.
The 23-year-old’s efforts have helped children all across England, including Liverpool. Everton thanked the player for his efforts prior to the Premier League clash between the Toffees and United at Goodison Park. Whether Liverpool will do the same remains to be seen.
While a section of their supporters is in favour of it, there are also a large number of them against it. Rather than downplay Rashford’s efforts, it is a legitimate concern of not having to root for your rival star.
Given the tribal nature of football allegiances, the decision is understandable.
While we wouldn’t mind either way if Rashford gets a banner or not, a show of thanks could help unite a country that has been divided for some time now.
After all, no quarter will be given once the whistle blows and the match kicks off this weekend.
What Liverpool ultimately decide to do remains to be seen. We take a look at how fans reacted to the suggestion on Twitter.
Liverpool fans divided about unveiling Rashford banner at Anfield
Have any Liverpool fan groups arranged for a banner to be on the Kop this weekend for Marcus Rashford?— Tim (@TimD2704) January 12, 2021
Hunger has no colours. Thank you, Marcus.
I am 💯 “pro” a positive Marcus Rashford gesture on Sunday fwiw. Whether that be a banner on one of the stands, or a message pre-game. Not arsed. The lad’s boss and some things are much, much bigger than football. Tories starving kids is one of them.— Diego’s Left Hand (@tmwhito) January 12, 2021

Yes we should put up banners for Marcus Rashford in the Kop but with an England Kit not the United one.— B.P (@CertifiedRed96) January 14, 2021
I hope this reaches to the concerned people.
Someone burn that Marcus Rashford banner before the game. 🙏— • (@LuffyLFC) January 14, 2021

A big NO from me. Very much in support of Marcus Rashford and what he’s doing off the pitch and I give him my full support to him off the field. But no, Anfield is our temple and I will never support a banner in the Kop for a player of our biggest rivals.— Gerry Mac ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (@gmac72_LFC) January 12, 2021
Marcus Rashford is doing fantastic things for families all over the country and should be commended— Gareth Cullen (@garethjcullen) January 13, 2021
But if you want a banner for him on the Kop Sunday you’re fucking tapped
