Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford came to the rescue of Aston Villa women’s team superstar Alisha Lehmann earlier this month.
Alisha Lehmann and Marcus Rashford happened to be at the same location when mobs began to surround the female football star at a night club.
Marcus Rashford was already on seat at a VIP section he had booked ahead at that point.
Lehman, who is deemed as one of the sexiest and popular women’s footballer in the world, caught the attention of the crowd when she arrived at the club.
Immediately she arrived, some fans began to mill and gather around her.
According to a witness to the incident as disclosed by the Sun, Marcus Rashford has not met with Alisha before but had to come to her rescue when it was clear she will be choked by ecstatic fans who were eager to catch up with her as she arrived.
He cleared a table in the VIP section for her and Alisha climbed up with the Manchester United star. She was very grateful with Rashford’s gesture before carrying on with partying, according to a eye witness.
“Marcus cleared a table and invited her and her friends to join them.
“It was the first time they’d met but he knew who Alisha was.
“They exchanged a few words and she thanked him then they carried on partying with their separate sets of friends,” the witness said.
Marcus Rashford’s gentlemanly act was a sublime move to save Alisha Lehmann from danger and has nothing to do with any intimate relationship with her.
The prolific Manchester United forward is engaged to his lover Lucia Loi.
Alisha, on the other hand, is a bisexual, dating both men and women.
