Marcus Rashford was not involved in Tuesday’s training session before Manchester United head abroad to take on Granada.
As we all know, our best chance at silverware this season comes in the Europa League. Manchester United have been handed a favourable draw, going against La Liga side Granada.
Over two legs, you’d hope that the Old Trafford club have more than enough quality to get the job done – whatever side is named by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, the gaffer will likely be without one key star in Marcus Rashford, who missed training on Tuesday ahead of the game. That leaves the Reds sweating on his fitness and availability.
As we all know, Rashford has been carrying issues all season, Back, shoulder, ankle, You name it, Rashford’s had it. Heck, there’s even talk of him having surgery this summer and the only reason he’s putting it off is to finish out the season and take part in the European Championships.
It could be suggested that Solskjaer is anticipating Rashford missing this one hence why Anthony Elanga has been called up into the Europa League squad over the last 24 hours.
Honestly, though, there’s only so much pain you can put your body through before it just becomes too much. I wouldn’t be against Rashford going under the knife sooner rather than later – so he’s fully fit for the start of the 2021/22 season.
Knowing Rashford, he’ll continue to show us all just how much of a fighter he is, putting his body on the line for his teammates. That’s one of the reasons why we all love him so much. He’s a true man of the people – on and off the field.
