England and Manchester United star footballer Marcus Rashford has received high praise after his recent campaign to persuade the British government to provide free meals to needy school children.

The singer has now revealed that his management agency, Roc Nation has signed Rashford, 22, and wants to turn the footballer into a global campaigner.

President of Roc Nation Sports International, Michael Yormark told British daily, The Telegraph: "We don't really consider ourselves a traditional agency—we really are a movement. Companies today want to align with people that are passionate about the community, that want to take a stand against injustice, and so we encourage all our clients to be aggressive in this space."
