According to the Independent, Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that striker Marcus Rashford faces ‘another few months’ on the sidelines with a back injury.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s update on the forward’s injury will be a massive blow to the Red Devils, who are forcing for a finish in a Champions League spot. Solskjaer added that it’s ‘touch and go’ whether Marcus Rashford will play again this season.
Marcus Rashford has been on the sidelines since last month’s FA Cup replay clash against Wolves, the lightning-fast forward didn’t last too long after coming on a substitute and was pushed off with the injury.
This is what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to say on the possibility of Marcus Rashford returning before the season ends.”
“It’ll be touch and go,”
“It takes time. I’m not a doctor but I was hoping that he would recover quicker than it actually looks like he will. He’ll be out for another few months, definitely.”
“We had a scan, it was maybe more severe than we expected. I’ve never had anatomy in school. I didn’t know it takes that time to recover, but when it’s healed, he’ll be stronger for it.”
“If he’s not fit enough, he won’t go [to Euro 2020],”
Marcus Rashford’s injury turning out to be more severe than first feared could also prove to be a significant blow to England ahead of this summer’s European Championship.
Three Lions captain Harry Kane is already sidelined, should Rashford struggle to return to full fitness before the campaign ends, Gareth Southgate could have a significant issue on his hands for the Euros.
Marcus Rashford has been Manchester United’s main man this season, the forward has bagged 19 goals and registered five assists for the Red Devils this term.
From a neutral perspective, it’s heartbreaking to see the 22-year-old ace suffer this major setback just when he was beginning to prove himself as one of the best forwards in the league.
