A Marcus Rashford injury concern has come to light over the last 24 hours, with the striker struggling with an ankle problem.
The story comes from The Telegraph, who state that Rashford is a ‘doubt’ for England’s upcoming UEFA Nations League games.
Apparently, the United star is suffering from an ankle injury which is carrying over from last season. Furthermore, Rashford played through the pain barrier in the ‘final games’ of the term – which could explain the sub-par displays.
Since then, Rashford has had a scan on the problem and is set for a short period of rest to get fit for the new season. The hope is that, he can play right through the 2020/21 term, into next summer’s European Championships.
For all the good work Rashford has done off the field, you always felt like there was something wrong with him on it. Don’t forget that it was a major back issue which ruled him out from January right through till his return in June. Now, it’s an ankle issue.
We’re left in the dark in regards to the severity, but it doesn’t look like anything too serious as Rashford isn’t having surgery. Instead, he’s giving it time to rest and heal up before a 2020/21 campaign that’s set to be pretty hectic.
Rashford has to build on an excellent breakthrough campaign
This season, Rashford was sensational. He’s fulfilling endless potential, while hitting that 20-goal mark for the first time in his career.
Now, it’s about taking it up another notch. Hopefully, the injury isn’t giving him too much trouble and the Englishman can now improve even further.
For now, it’s about healing up, not getting too downhearted about *probably* missing a couple of England games and getting ready for a huge game against Crystal Palace on the opening day.
Get well soon, Marcus!
