According to reports from the Sun, Manchester United striker’s girlfriend, Lucia Loi, 22, has spent the last three years studying advertising and brand management at Manchester Metropolitan University.
And on Wednesday she revealed she had been awarded the highest grade available to a BA (Hons) student — setting her up for a successful career in PR and advertising.
Manchester United and England star Marcus, also 22, and Lucia started dating after meeting at school.
After Marcus broke into United’s first team in 2016 — scoring two goals on his debut — he celebrated by playing pool in their common room at Ashton on Mersey School, in Sale, Greater Manchester.
Lucia later cheered him on from the stands as he played for England against Colombia at the 2018 World Cup. Her success comes after Marcus persuaded the Government to give kids who usually get free school meals weekly £15 vouchers during the summer holidays.
A source said: “Marcus and Lucia have had a great few weeks and are really looking forward to celebrating properly when the football season is over.” According to Lucia’s public LinkedIn page, she has also carried out charity work in Zambia, helping to host educational and sports classes for impoverished children.
