MARCUS RASHFORD’S decision to join Jay Z’s Roc Nation sports agency helped him to win his battle for free school meals.
The Manchester United forward, 22, has been widely praised after his campaign led to a U-turn from the Government.
It has now been revealed that the England international signed up to the rapper’s agency in April.
According to the Telegraph, Jay Z even said he is “extremely proud” of what Rashford has achieved.
A statement from Roc Nation read: “We can confirm that Roc Nation has represented Marcus Rashford since April 2020.
“The representation is strictly off-field, encompassing philanthropy, PR and marketing, communications, digital strategy and commercial partnerships.
“DNMaysportsmgt continue to represent Marcus Rashford for all on on-field activity.”
Roc Nation are now in charge of the Manchester United star’s off-the-field activities.
But he will continue to be represented by his brothers, Dane and Dwaine, as a footballer.
Rashford is the latest star to team up with them after the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne.
Fans have even called for the inspirational striker to take over from Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.
Around 1.3million children in England will be able to claim free school meal vouchers throughout the summer holiday as a result of his campaign.
And the United superstar has also helped to raise £20million for the anti-hunger charity FareShare.
