The Manchester United forward reflects on an exceptional year in which, inspired by his mother Mel Mel, he claims, he changed the lives of millions of individuals.

The Guardian Footballer of the Year is an award given to a player who, by overcoming hardship, assisting others, or setting a sporting precedent by behaving with outstanding integrity, has achieved something extraordinary.

When his words and deeds have made him the only alternative to be named the Guardian’s Footballer of the Year, Marcus Rashford is thinking about a pretty remarkable 2020.

As normal, the Manchester United and England forward has excelled on the pitch, but he is no longer determined by the day job. How would he do so because he has done more than anybody else to look after the UK’s poorest and most disadvantaged children?

Rashford was affected by Mel’s love and support for him and his four siblings as she raised them in the Wythenshawe neighborhood of southern Manchester as a single parent. In three jobs, she worked long hours and would sacrifice anything for their happiness. But Rashford says he can remember the look that she had occasionally as she fought to put food on the table. It was one of fear, almost depression, and much of the campaigning work he has led has been underpinned by it.
