Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Marcus Rashford did pick up an injury vs Atalanta.

Manchester United Football Club pulled off the impossible. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fought back from 2-0 down to win the game 3-2.

Just when it looked like the Baby Faced Assassin’s fate was sealed, his players showed they still believe in him, to secure a huge three points.

It was that man Cristiano Ronaldo again who stole all the headlines with a stunning header to win the game. However, Marcus Rashford sent us on our way just as the second half kicked off.

Our English idol scored a lovely goal, his second in two games upon returning, to bring the crowd back into it and offer hope to the players.

However, after the game, it was confirmed that the United star did pick up an injury. Solskjaer explained that it was a dead leg and those types of injuries ‘can take longer than what you want’. Obviously, that’s less than ideal…

β€œIt was a dead leg and sometimes it can take longer than what you want. But if we treat it well, he should be okay.” Solskjaer told

With a Liverpool game just on the horizon, it would have been nice to have Rashy available for that one in some capacity. However, Solskjaer’s tone suggested to me that he was doubtful the Englishman would be fit enough for that one.

We have to remember that Rashford has only just returned from injury, though. The worst thing we can do is put too much pressure on his body and maybe giving him a break for a few days is what’s best for us in the long-term.

Let’s be honest, although it’s a massive fixture, Liverpool is just one game. I’d rather have Rashford around for the long-term as he’s already showing what a crucial player he is to this side.

Fingers crossed the problem isn’t a serious one and he’s back out there soon.
