Marcus Rashford Proves His Tolerance on Romantic Holiday with Fiancée Lucia Loi by Paying £240,000 to Rent a Boeing 747
Marcus Rashford, the Manchester United (MU) striker, has recently made headlines for chartering a Boeing 747 to fly him and his fiancée Lucia Loi to New York last month.
The Mirror reported that Rashford spent a staggering £240,000 on the private jet, which can carry up to 125 passengers. Despite being injured and away from the team, Rashford did not let this stop him from enjoying a romantic holiday with Loi.
The couple, who met at Greater Manchester High School when they were both 15 years old, got engaged in May 2022.
Loi has been a staunch supporter of Rashford, traveling to Russia to cheer him on during the 2018 World Cup and going to Qatar to support him during the 2022 World Cup. Rashford and Loi were recently spotted in Central Park, New York, posing for pictures together.
Although Rashford has received criticism from some fans for taking a vacation while England was playing in the EURO 2024 qualifiers, England coach Gareth Southgate defended Rashford, saying, “When Rashford leaves the national team, it’s up to him how he uses his time.”
Unfortunately, Rashford is currently sidelined with a muscle injury, which is bad news for MU. The 25-year-old player has been having his best season at the club, scoring 28 goals in 47 matches. MU coach Ten Hag is worried about the team’s situation, as several players, including Rashford, have been injured.
MU’s next match is against Nottingham Forest tonight (22:30, Hanoi time), followed by a visit to Sevilla’s field for the second leg of the Europa League quarter-finals on April 21.
Despite the injury setbacks, Rashford’s romantic gesture toward his fiancée has certainly gained attention. It shows that the striker is not only dedicated to his team but also to his personal life. With Rashford’s passion and talent, he is sure to continue making headlines both on and off the pitch.
