Marcus Rashford has revealed that he will wait until the end of Euro 2020 to decide whether to undergo shoulder surgery. The England and Manchester United forward has been playing through pain since injuring his shoulder in November last year. He had decided to take a decision after the Premier League at the time. In case he does decide to undergo surgery he will miss the start of the Premier League campaign.
“It’s either an operation or I don’t get an operation,” Marcus Rashford said at Euro 2020. “I’m not 100 percent sure if I need it yet, so I’ll just take it as it comes. I’ll finish strong here and I’ve got a few weeks off to just relax and decide what I’m going to do.”
“The doctors have not said yet,” he added. ”The reason I don’t know is that when the season was going, and before I came here, I knew there was no chance I was going to be getting the operation, so I did not know how long the operation would put me out for. I am fully concentrated on here. When the tournament is finished, then I will ask the question.”
Rashford has not started in any of England’s group games. He has only come on as a substitute and admits that he isn’t enjoying the best of form. He also maintained that his injury problems have no bearing on his form.
“Obviously I am not performing at my best and what I know I can perform to,” Rashford said. “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.”
