Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has confirmed that he underwent successful surgery on his shoulder. The club had announced that the forward would undergo surgery on his shoulder that was an issue during the second half of the season. It was revealed that he would return to training after five weeks but would be able to be back to match fitness only after twelve weeks.
”Thank you for all the well wishes,” Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford posted on Twitter. “I had my surgery on Friday morning and everything went very well. A little sore but other than that I’m feeling good.”
Rashford made five appearances for England in Euro 2020. He was scheduled to undergo surgery immediately after the Euros but was made to wait for the availability of a particular surgeon.
“When I was 11 years old, Manchester United helped me and my family out of a really difficult situation. I will always feel indebted. When the club needs me, I’ll be there.” Rashford added a month ago. “Any role I can play in helping my boyhood club I’m going to do it. Even to my detriment at times. Having been out of the game recovering from the double stress fracture, and having spent a lot of time away from teammates and staff who’d been a part of my life for as long as I could remember, I needed to feel a part of something again. I needed to feel like I was playing my part.”
