Good Morning Britain anchor Richard Madeley has left social media users in fits of laughter following his latest comments. It comes after a dedicated Marcus Rashford fan had hoped to cheer the footballing star up.
Really he should have scored shouldn’t he?
Sunday night saw England narrowly miss out on taking home the Euro 2020 trophy following a tense penalty shoot-out.
After Marcus Rashford just missed out on netting a goal, the Manchester United forward looked heartbroken as he called his head in his hands.
Rashford, 23, later apologised to fans in a heartfelt social media post admitting that he went into the final “with a lack of confidence”.
He later said that “something didn’t feel quite right” in the moments before he took his penalty and the result is not something he had anticipated.
In a bid to cheer the Manchester-born ace up, nine-year-old Dexter Rosier penned an adorable letter to the football ace who is his “hero”.
Speaking to Richard Madeley on today’s edition of Good Morning Britain, Dexter said: “After the penalty shootout I was afraid he was feeling sad because people were being mean about him being black, I wanted to cheer him up.”
“Well you certainly did that,” replied Richard.
Dexter went on to reveal that he himself plays football and has missed penalties in the past.
Speaking to the youngster, Richard said: “So you know what it feels like, don’t you? Because it’s horrible and really he should have scored shouldn’t he?”
He added: “That’s the whole point of a penalty, it’s meant to be an easy shot at goal!”
While Dexter laughed at Richard’s outburst, co-anchor Susanna Reid was left stunned, exclaiming: “Don’t rub it in, Richard!”
Shortly after Richard’s comment, social media was set alight by fans who couldn’t help but laugh and compare the broadcaster to Alan Partridge.
One user tweeted: “Richard Madeley going full Partridge. #richardmadeley #GMB #alanpartridge #itv #MarcusRashford.”
While a second added: “Richard ‘meant to be an easy shot on goal’ – hilarious.”
“An easy shot at goal? I bet Madeley has never kicked a football in his life, total Partridge,” said a third.
Before a fourth penned: “Madeley putting his size 20s in again! Making Susanna do her smug smile.”
It comes after Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka were targeted by vile racist social media trolls after they missed their penalties during the shoot out.
Prince William took to social media and said he was “sickened” by the racist abuse that members of the England team have faced.
While Prime Minister, Boris Johnson said abusers should be “ashamed of themselves” and has since revealed that those who are racist on social media will be banned from football matches.
Since the match on Sunday evening, The Metropolitan Police forced are now investigating the claims.
England manager Gareth Southgate described the abuse as “unforgivable”
