A former Ghanaian footballer claims to be the ‘real father’ of Marcus Rashford, adds that the United stars’ identity has been changed

A former Ghanaian footballer Micheal Boye Marquaye is claiming to be the biological father of Manchester United star man Marcus Rashford.

According to the records available, Marcus Rashford was born in Wythenshawe, Manchester in the UK with Melanie Rashford of St Kitts descent as his mother and Jamaican Joseph Rashford as his father.

However, that record is being challenged now by Michael Boye Marquaye, who himself was a prolific striker in his playing days.

Michael speaking on Kumasi FM and quoted by Bright Owusu Messiah indicates he is the biological father of Marcus Rashford. 

“Marcus Rashford is my biological son. He’s half Ghanaian and half English. His mom is a white whom my relationship with was open, her family knows me very well”, he told Kumasi FM and was quoted by Bright Owusu Messiah.

“I’m challenging everyone to sue and imprison me if anyone thinks these claims are lies. I have a lot of proves to back my claim, if challenged I will release evidences which will be damming to Marcus Rashford’s reputation.”

“Marcus Rashford isn’t a Jamaican, the adopted father is rather from Jamaica. Marcus Rashford’s name has been changed, the original name I gave him was Jonathan Mama Marcus.”

“I have not met him [Marcus Rashford] for now. You can log on to the Manchester United website and it is evident that he used to use my surname Marquaye before it was changed to Rashford.”

“Nobody should dare nor challenge my claims but if they do, I will release damming evidence that will be damaging to the image of Rashford.

“There have been many efforts by me to reach him in accepting me as his father but the white mother has polluted his mind.

“I’m ready for a paternity test to prove he is my son”, he added.

When queried on why he has remained silent all these years and why he is bringing this out now, Michael Boye Marquaye states that he wants to set the record straight that Rashford has Ghanaian roots.

“I do not need Marcus Rashford’s money, I have enough money for myself now, but I only need acknowledgement. It hurts me when I hear people say he is a Jamaican, I do not want to hear that again”, he added.

Marcus Rashford since making his debut in 2016 has become an integral member of the Manchester United and England national team, making over 200 appearances and scoring 74 goals.
