Marcus Rashford Injury update: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer issues update on his injured forward who hasn’t featured for Man Utd since mid-January.
Manchester United have had a tough time with injuries this season. They lost Paul Pogba earlier in the season before having Scott McTominay, Marcus Rasford and Anthony Martial join him in the medical room one by one.
It is Marcus Rashford’s absence however, that has hurt Manchester United’s ambitions the most. The 22-year old has scored 14 goals this season and contributed with 4 assists as well. In total, he has netted19 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions this season.
He last featured for the Red Devils when he came on as a substitute during United’s FA Cup 3rd round replay vs Wolverhampton in January. Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now spoken on his recovery and the process ahead of Thursday’s FA Cup clash with Derby at Pride Park.
Marcus Rashford Injury update
“As [with] any player, he wants to be fit as quickly as possible and play as soon as possible,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
“If that means playing in April, if he’ll be fit for us towards the end of the season, fantastic. If it takes longer, it takes longer.
“We just have to be sensible with it because we’re going to have Marcus playing here for many, many years.”
Asked for an update on the 22-year-old’s recovery, the Norwegian replied:
“The scans were encouraging. He’s now working in the gym and in the pool, and he’s moving around better. He’s in and around the place. It’s like how long is a piece of rope? It’s difficult.”
Solskjaer also spoke on Paul Pogba’s recovery and revealed that the Frenchman would not train with the first team until next week.
“Paul’s still working with the physios outside and he won’t be training with the first-team until next week.
“Then let’s see how long that will take, he will need some time to get his football fitness back.”
