‘Class is permanent’ – Artist Reuben Dangoor unveils stunning Marcus Rashford mural showing online praise and abuse

A STUNNING mural for Marcus Rashford has brilliantly shown support for the Manchester United forward.

The Red Devils attacker is enduring a tough spell on the pitch at the moment.




He has not scored since January 22 and was slammed by Roy Keane for SMILING in the warm-up against Chelsea.

But artist Reuben Dangoor has produced a fine piece of artwork on a wall in the Shudehill area of Manchester – revealing online abuse and highlighting praise for Rashford.

The painting shows the Manchester-born ace in a Red Devils home shirt with his eyes closed and wearing a pair of Beats earbuds to block out the noise as part of the collaboration with the tech brand.

On the left, above the term "form is temporary" sits below a cluster of angry emoji-style faces interspersed with raging tweets hitting out at Rashford.

But the left, a lighter shade, has the opposite with happy, smiling, adoring and loving faces, coupled with love hearts and supportive tweets above the phrase "class is temporary".

Dangoor posted the mural on Instagram and wrote: "Mural for @beatsbydre x @marcusrashford.

"Beats wanted to do something to show support for Marcus, who is subject to a huge amount of abuse on social media.

"At the same time highlighting the positive work he has been doing off the pitch and the impact that it’s had."

The post received plenty of positive reaction with fans replying "class", "unreal" and "brilliant".

Away from scoring 105 goals in 349 appearances for United and England, 24-year-old Rashford has demonstrated his compassion for the community.

His charity and activism campaigning – helping to provide free school meals during lockdown, fighting child poverty, challenging the UK Government and writing books – confirmed his status as a national hero and an MBE.

That led to another mural in his hometown – although it was defaced after his penalty miss in the Euro 2020 final.
