Marcus Rashford an injury doubt for Man United’ next two games

Marcus Rashford has emerged as a serious injury doubt for Manchester United’s next couple of fixtures.

Grabbing goals and assists on the field, feeding kids off it. Marcus Rashford is the undoubted hero of the COVID-19 pandemic in this country, doing fantastic work in every aspect of life.

On the field at the weekend, Manchester United’s number ten would be celebrating a derby day victory. However, that win was marred by an injury suffered with around fifteen minutes to go.

Rashford would put his body on the line, making a lung-bursting run backwards to win the ball back for his team when Manchester City were in a threatening position. In the end, that’d cost him as he’d suffer a knock to his ankle.

Well, ahead of our Europa League tie against AC Milan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would give us all a Rashford injury update. Sadly, the star wasn’t involved in training ahead of the Milan game. He’s now a doubt to take on West Ham at the weekend.

Check out what the gaffer had to say here:

He’s still getting treatment. He didn’t take part in training. Probably a doubt for the weekend.” Solskjaer told the media, including The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell.

“The 60-yard recovery run showed the appetite + hunger we have. Probably worth it there + then but never happy when you lose players.”

As we stated in Monday’s article, Rashford was already unlikely to feature against Milan. However, this time off could do his shoulder and back the world of good – as he’s seriously struggling with both at the moment.

When Bruno Fernandes converted his first-minute penalty, Rashy was already clutching at his back, looking in visible agony. There’s talk he’s going to have off-season surgery to fix that issue, but right now, he’s playing through the pain barrier and this week or so off may help prolong his 2020/21 season.

Rashford is the present and future of this club. The worst thing United can do is keep sending him out on that pitch, knowing full well the Englishman could suffer a worse problem. Personally, I’d let him have surgery now if it helped his career in the long-term.

Get well soon, Marcus!
