Manchester United have confirmed that Marcus Rashford will miss at least the first two months of the Premier League season as he will undergo surgery to rectify his shoulder injury. Although Rashford can return after five weeks for training, it could take 12 weeks for him to possibly return to action. The England international made five appearances during their Euro 2020 run to the final. He had to delay the surgery due to the availability of the required surgeon.
“Following consultation between Marcus, the manager, club medical staff and specialists, Marcus Rashford will undergo surgery imminently to resolve his shoulder injury,” a statement from Manchester United read. “He will now focus on his rehabilitation in order to return as soon as possible.”
Rashford mentioned before the euros that his shoulder injury caused him a lot of discomfort during the second half of the season.
“Obviously I am not performing at my best and what I know I can perform to,” Rashford said three weeks ago. “Whatever that is down to, it doesn’t really matter because it has been going on since early on in the season. I managed to get through the season with United.”
“I think I had 36 goal involvements, so I can’t look back at the year and say ‘mmm, I should have taken time off to do this and do that. That’s just not the way I look at things. I just want to be available for every game.” he added.
