Rashford issues injury update ahead of Burnley clash
Marcus Rashford has given an update on his recent injury before Manchester United’s clash with Burnley on Wednesday night.
Rashford has been arguably Manchester United’s best player this season.
The Englishman has scored an impressive 19 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils in this campaign.
Rashford’s 14 league goals see him joint-third in the top-scorer charts, just three behind Jamie Vardy.
However, his race for the golden boot is no doubt over.
Rashford suffered a stress fracture during Manchester United’s clash with Wolves in the FA Cup.
When asked about whether Rashford would be back this season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to commit to an answer:
“Marcus is going to get as long as he needs to get fit,” he explained, as quoted by the Evening Standard.
“We are not going to risk him when he has had an injury.
“I have got the best medical staff in the country and I am sure when Marcus comes back he will be 100% fit.”
Now, Rashford has revealed that his season is not at risk.
“I’ll be back before the season ends…”
Posting on social media, Rashford claimed that he would be back before the season ends.
Quoting a Premier League tweet, he responded: “I’ll be back before the season ends to hopefully help my team claim top four.”
Thanks guys, I’ll be back before the season ends to hopefully help my team claim top 4 https://t.co/JhTUi8yzLO

That will come as a big relief for Manchester United and England fans.
There was at least some threat that Rashford and Harry Kane may not be ready for Euro 2020.
There have been suggestions that Kane could miss the remainder of the season after suffering a hamstring injury.
However, Rashford’s social media comments will at least alleviate fears around his own injury.
