Reacting to the former President’s frankness, the Footballer said it was “surreal” to be talking to Mr. Obama from his kitchen in Manchester.

Barack Obama backed young people such as Mr Rashford who are “positive forces in their communities”.

The men, in a meeting set up by the publishers Penguin, discussed Mr Obama’s memoir and shared experiences, such as being raised by single mothers and their involvement in community projects.

“Even if you do something positive on a small scale, that’s making a difference, and it’s the accumulation of people doing positive things over time that makes us a little bit better with each successive generation,” Mr. Obama stated.

He added saying; “If I had had more talent I would have probably preferred to be a professional athlete, like Marcus.”
