Manchester United star Marcus Rashford stalks a fan he shared a hug with after the final strike for a shirt after Erik ten Hag’s side beat Crystal Palace at Old Trafford
Marcus Rashford has taken to social media to help find a fan he kissed to give him his Manchester United shirt.
The England international was on the scoresheet again in a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford – his 19th of the season in all competitions.
And the Red Devils ended up needing it after Casemiro’s wild red card saw the Eagles win one back by Jeffrey Schlupp to halve the deficit after Bruno Fernandes netted an early penalty.
But United held on for victory and propelled Newcastle into third place after the Magpies’ 1-1 draw with West Ham.
As for goal machine Rashford, he jumped into the crowd after his strike against Palace, with the 25-year-old embracing a cheering young fan.
Rashford has since taken to social media to try to identify the supporter in order to give him a signed shirt.
He tweeted“Whoever this guy is that I hug, I would like to give him my shirt.
“Tag him in the picture I have just so I can sign it and send it to him.”
