Marcus Rashford is feeling in great spirits ahead of his return to action this weekend.
After a fortnight off, Manchester United return this Saturday. It won’t be an easy game either, with the Red Devils heading to Leicester City to take on Brendan Rodgers’ side at the King Power.
It has always been a tricky place for any opposing team, this time around we shouldn’t expect any different. The Foxes are a top side capable of beating anyone on their day, thus, we’ll have to be at our best.
The dressing room may well be boosted by the return of Marcus Rashford. Now, we all know he’s not going to start this one after so long off – but there’s a good shot he’s back amongst the substitutes.
Now, while speaking to the media, the United star has sent a positive injury update, admitting he’s ‘fully free’ of an injury that had hampered him for the best part of a year before surgery in July.
Check out what Rashford had to say on his injury recovery here:
“My recovery is – I wouldn’t say coming to an end because obviously I have to keep looking after it – but I’m in a much better place physically and mentally.” Rashford told the BBC.
“Last year was a very long season for me, I got this injury at the end of September and gradually it got that little bit worse, but now I’m fully free of that, I feel much better physically and mentally.”
I cannot stress how important Rashford is to this team. It’s easy to forget that the Englishman had a hand in 30 goals for us last season. That’s while he was dealing with an injury!
We’ve been missing his quality at the start of this campaign and getting him back 100% healthy is a massive lift for the whole dressing room. No doubt training with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo will only help the development of our number 10, too.
Obviously, we shouldn’t expect too much too soon. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give Rashford all the time in the world to get back to full fitness before throwing him into the starting line-up. The worst thing we can do is rush it.
It’s brilliant to hear from the man himself though and he’s obviously feeling really good at this juncture.
