Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford has been described as “a gentleman” after reportedly coming to the aid of Aston Villa’s Alisha Lehmann at a nightclub.
The two footballers enjoyed nights out in Manchester in April, both ending up with Aston Villa star Alisha Lehmann.
According SunSwiss international Lehmann was packed upon his arrival at the nightspot, prompting Rashford to intervene.
Although he had never met his fellow footballer, Rashford recognized Lehmann and invited her to a private area of the club away from the crowds.
“Marcus cleared a table and invited her and her friends to join them,” a Chinawhite source told Sun of the incident
“It was the first time they had met, but he knew who Alisha was. They exchanged a few words and she thanked him and then continued to party with the separate groups of her friends. She thought he was a gentleman.
Rashford has enjoyed a fine individual season in Erik ten Hag’s first year in charge of Old Trafford, and Manchester United are still hoping to complete a domestic cup double when they face Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday 3 of June.
Meanwhile, Lehmann hopes that Aston Villa can end their season strongly, with Carla Ward’s side currently fifth in the Women’s Super League.
The 24-year-old came off the bench against Manchester United on Friday but was unable to prevent her side from letting a 2-1 lead slip away as Millie Turner cruised to a late 3-2 win for the league leaders.
