Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has a serious injury. The footballer is likely to undergo surgery for a shoulder injury, claims The Telegraph. According to media reports, Marcus Rashford will endure surgery for his injury, but United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes those reports are premature.
He underwent an MRI scan, revealing a deterioration in his shoulder over the injury, which Rashford has been playing with since November. The player is concerned that the problem has not been resolved with time and intends to undergo surgery, but there is no opportunity to do so before the end of the month.
The Red Devils have yet to decide whether Marcus Rashford requires surgery in spite of the reports to the contrary. Recovery will take six weeks before returning to individual training and another six weeks before returning to the general group.
Recent media speculation suggested that United and Rashford had agreed that the England international needed surgery to correct a long-standing shoulder problem. However, Solskjaer insists no decision has been made.
Solskjaer was questioned if surgery was definitely in the offing for Rashford according to the club’s official website. “No, we’re looking at the best options,” replied the coach after United’s 2-1 friendly win over Derby County. “Of course, he went away just to reflect on it a little bit. We have to take the best course of action for him and the club. We’re still addressing that with the experts,” Solskjaer added.
Marcus Rashford was racially abused after missing a penalty in Euro 2020 final match against Italy. The abuse was also directed at his teammates Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka. All three black players missed penalties for England in the European tournament. He tweeted an apology for missing the penalty and proudly accepted his identity. He wrote: “my penalty was not good enough, it should have gone in, but I will never apologize for who I am and where I come from.”
