Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives a positive update on Marcus Rashford’s return.
Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford is close to returning to action.
Marcus Rashford might return from injury in mid-October, according to Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 23-year-old has yet to play this season after undergoing shoulder surgery in the summer, but he is back in training and on the verge of making his long-awaited comeback.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
Rashford’s form dipped towards the conclusion of the 2020/21 season, as he struggled with shoulder and foot injuries.
Because of his ambition to play for his nation, he was named to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2020.
However, he was cast in a minor role and was left regretting his decision not to undergo surgery sooner and limit his absence at the start of the new season.
Solskjaer recently provided an update on the timeline for his return, indicating that he is nearing the end of the tunnel.
United hosts West Ham in the Carabao Cup third round at Old Trafford on Wednesday, and both sides are set to make major changes.
Solskjaer stated Rashford might return to the pitch after the next international break in mid-October, speaking ahead of the match.
On October 16, United will face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, and Rashford might be in the lineup.
“Yeah, [Rashford and Telles’ recoveries are] progressing well,” Solskjaer said on the club’s website. They’ve both put forth a lot of effort. Marcus [Rashford] is a little ahead of Alex [Telles].
“I don’t think we’ll see Marcus until after the international break, but Alex has put in a lot of effort and will be part of the [West Ham] squad.”
Phil Jones, who hasn’t played for United since January 2020, will join Telles in the squad to face West Ham.
Solskjaer is ecstatic for the 29-year-old, who is recovering from a long-term physical fight.
“I’m ecstatic for Phil,” the United manager said.
“He’s played two 90-minute games for the under-23s and a few minutes behind closed doors, and his knee has had no reaction.
“He’s been putting in a lot of effort.” I was a part of it for the better part of three years, or at least more than two of those three years, and I understand the mental hurdles he’s had.
“I’m not sure if I’ll ever play.” Brinkwire Summary News.
