MARCUS RASHFORD has become the latest Manchester United star to be gifted shin pads by a young Red Devils fan.
The England forward stopped outside Carrington to greet a supporter that had waited outside for him.
Rashford, 24, even received a gift – being handed a pair of personalised shin guards.
One pad features a head shot of Rashford over a St George’s cross, as well as his name and a picture of him playing for Man United.
The other features the slogan “Family ties” along with snaps of the Red Devils hero with his nearest and dearest.
After thanking the supporter, Rashford posed for a picture from his motor.
United’s No10 is not the club’s first star to be gifted shin pads.
The same young fan gave a pair to Jadon Sancho last month.
And the England winger even wore them during a game.
After scoring against FC Sheriff in the Europa League, Sancho lifted one of them aloft, dedicating his goal to the United-mad kid.
Asked about them after the match, he said: “Yeah, a little kid gave me some shinpads and asked me to wear them.
“I said ‘Yeah, no problem’ and that was a little gesture from me when I scored, showing him that I was wearing his shinpads that he gave me.”
The same young supporter has had his picture taken with many Man United stars.
His Instagram account features snaps of himself with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, David de Gea, Raphael Varane, Antony, Bruno Fernandes… and even boss Erik ten Hag.
