Man United are concerned that Marcus Rashford could miss the start of 2021/22 with injury.
On a night where Marcus Rashford captained England for the first time and also scored the winner, Manchester United could be left pretty concerned.
According to The Mirror, United fear their key star could miss the season’s start. That’s because Rashford is planning surgery after EURO 2020.
The Englishman spent practically the whole campaign dealing with both foot and shoulder issues, managing them both as well as he could.
However, the 23-year-old is believed to be ready to have surgery on at least one of those issues, most likely his foot, as soon as the Three Lions’ tournament is over.
Understandably, Rashford ruled out having surgery before the European Championships as he was committed to representing his beloved England at a major tournament.
However, he recognises that he’ll have to go under the knife, particularly as the critics were out in full force at the end of our last term.
Honestly, I understand Rashford loves his country, but United should have final say. At the end of the day, they’re the ones that pay his wages and if the Reds think he should have had surgery straight after our season ended, then that’s what should’ve happened.
The only party that comes away from this negatively is United. If England go deep into the tournament, there’s every chance Rashford will have no pre-season whatsoever and he’ll probably miss some league matches, too.
Hopefully, Rashford can enjoy his European Championships, come back to Manchester unscathed and get the surgery he needs as soon as physically possible. We’re going to need him if we’re serious about contending for the title this season.
