Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford provides injury update

Rashford injured

Marcus Rashford began the 2019/20 campaign in top form.

After 22 games of the Premier League season, the Englishman had managed to score 14 and assist four in 22 league outings.

This type of form would have put Rashford in contention for the Golden Boot award if he had kept it up all season.

The 22-year-old’s goalscoring exploits also boded well for England, with the Euros having been scheduled to take place in the summer.

However, Rashford’s season took a turn for the worse at the beginning of 2020.

Rashford came on as a sub in the FA Cup vs Wolves, but the forward had to be withdrawn just 17 minutes later.

Rashford injury update

Rashford has since missed all of United’s games, with Sky reporting that the attacker had suffered a double stress fracture in his back.

With Rashford sidelined, Man United have had to look elsewhere for the majority of their goals, and whilst the likes of Anthony Martial and new signing Odion Ighalo have done decent jobs, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. will no doubt be keen to have their top scorer back as soon as possible.

Now, Rashford has provided a fresh update on his injury, and it sounds fairly positive.

The England international stated that he is feeling much better, and is set to have a scan in a couple of days.

Rashford also mentioned how he is much happier than he was about a month ago:

“I feel much better. I have a scan in another couple of days and that should solidify it, but I feel much better compared to two or three weeks ago.

“I feel 10 times better now. For me, now it’s just about getting ready to build up back up to training and then playing games for the team.

“I’m in a much better place. I’m much happier than I was about a month ago so things are looking positive.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
