Marcus Rashford has asked the stars to “pick up your ball and go to the garden” tomorrow after the academy season in England was shut down due to the coronavirus.

The UP leagues ended on Friday, with the UK still locked in the COVID-19 epidemic.

While the Premier League and English Football League are still hoping to resume the season, academy teams should now look to 2020-21 instead of ending their campaigns.

Manchester United academy graduate England striker Rashford has expressed sympathy for the young players who have not cut their asons.

However, he emphasized that this was not the time for them to fall in love with football.

“You probably didn’t want to hear the news you got yesterday,” Rashford tweeted on Saturday.

“I know you play what you want to do because I’m the same but decided to protect everyone involved. It’s bigger than football.

“You’re feeling a little low, but the best thing you can do is pick up your ball and go out into the garden.

“When I was at the academy I found a place in the garden and set goals so that I could practice my fitness, be creative!

“Now is not the time to fall in love with the game, it’s time to think about why you fell in love with her in the first place. You got it and we can’t wait to see you again next season!”
