Rashford wrote on Tuesday: "Just heard Spectator are planning to run a story on me tomorrow about how I have benefitted commercially in the last 18 months.
"To clarify, I don't need to partner with brands. I partner because I want to progress the work I do off the pitch and most of any fee I would receive contributes to that.
"Last summer, 1.3M children had access to food support, through my relationship with Burberry children have a safe place to be after school where they will be fed, following the November investment vulnerable children have safe places to go this summer holiday, and due to my relationship with Macmillan 80,000 children now have a book to call their own.
"Do I have a larger commercial appeal following the U-turns? I'm sure. But I'm also a Manchester United and England international footballer. Why has there always got to be a motive? Why can't we just do the right thing?
"I actually enjoy reading bits from The Spectator now and again but this is just a non-starter."
Made Johnson seem like a chump and now Johnson is setting his media pals on Rashford, especially after the penalty miss, the timing is right there. If the racism incident didn't happen immediately afterwards, they'd have published this sooner.
The Spectator go after Rashford
