Marcus Rashford has sent an injury update to us Man United fans – and it’s good news.
As we all know, Manchester United have been coping without Marcus Rashford since the season’s start.
Our English attacker had to undergo shoulder surgery for an issue that has been troubling him for quite some time – pretty much the whole of last season in fact…
The initial diagnosis suggested Rashford would be missing until October’s end, with that timeframe recently backed up by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The homegrown hero won’t be spotted out on the Old Trafford turf until after the next international break.
Well, the man himself has spoken and offered the fans an injury update. Furthermore, Rashford has revealed when he could be back in contact training. The forward is meeting with his doctor on Friday for a consultation and if all is well, he could be back out on the turf.
Check out Rashford’s tweet here:
Obviously, this is just the first of many small steps. After being out for so long, with literally no pre-season under his belt, it’s going to take Rashford a few weeks at least to even be under consideration for first-team games.
No doubt Solskjaer will want to see Rashford in training for at least a week or two first. Then, he’ll probably be involved in a couple of U23 games to build up the match sharpness.
United cannot afford to risk losing Rashford again so every precaution will be taken in order to protect the Red Devils number ten.
I’d much rather it be this way, too. We should build him up slowly rather than potentially seeing him injured again. If that means we don’t see Rashford starting games for another month or so, then so be it.
Simply put, we’re going to need this man more at the end of the campaign than we do now. It is great news to hear that he’s progressing though!
