Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided the fans with a Marcus Rashford injury update after the Red Devils lost 3-1 to PSG.
The Old Trafford club would start slowly, before crawling back into the match courtesy of a deflected Marcus Rashford goal.
From that point forward, the home team would control the game, but miss various glorious opportunities to take control and seal their spot in the Champions League knockout rounds.
Obviously, it’d come back to haunt us and United would lose 3-1. It went form bad to worse for the Baby Faced Assassin when Rashford would have to be subbed off with an apparent injury.
Now, United are sweating on the fitness of their key star ahead of the West Ham game this Saturday, with Solskjaer confirming it’s that shoulder issue that’s giving Rashford some troubles…
Check out the Rashford injury update provided to us by Solskjaer:
“It’s just niggling him, that shoulder injury,” the manager said live on BT Sport, per ManUtd.com.
“Let’s see how quickly he can recover. Let’s hope he can be ready for the West Ham game. But we don’t know.”
This is the second time Rashford has picked up one of those injuries that can’t be healed via surgery or resting up. Last year it was his back, this time it’s the shoulder.
The only way these sort of problems are solved is by not playing football matches at all for prolonged periods of time. Obviously, in the middle of an all-important season, Rashford is going to be afforded that luxury.
At this stage, it’s about managing the issue as carefully as possible, but we’ve got an awfully-long way to go in this season so I’d be surprised if this is the last we hear about it.
Personally, I’d rest Rashford against West Ham at the weekend as the RB Leipzig fixture next midweek is a much bigger one and we’re definitely going to need him for that match.
