Marcus Rashford’s injury status has been updated, with the Manchester United star stating that he is ‘desperate’ to return for the Liverpool match.
After the next international break, Marcus Rashford hopes to return to duty.
Marcus Rashford of Manchester United is keen to be back to full fitness in time for next month’s highly anticipated match against Liverpool. Rashford is yet to make an appearance for United this season as he recovers from shoulder surgery he underwent in the summer.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
The 23-year-old is close to returning, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expecting to have him available after the international break.
“Yeah, [Rashford and Telles’ recoveries are] progressing well,” he told reporters. They’ve both put forth a lot of effort.
“Alex [Telles] is a few steps ahead of Marcus [Rashford].” Marcus won’t be back until after the international break, I believe.”
According to recent rumors, Rashford has set a target date for himself to be 100 percent fit and ready to start for United.
Rashford is reportedly targeting Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford on October 24.
The powerful forward is making good progress in his recovery, which has kept him out of the starting lineup for the 2021/22 season.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on the other hand, does not want to rush Rashford back into action, and he might be available for selection in three weeks.
Before another two-week international break, the Red Devils face Aston Villa, Villarreal, and Everton.
When club football resumes, United will play Leicester City in the Premier League and Atalanta in the Champions League before welcoming Liverpool to town.
Rashford might return in one of those games to get some playing time and match sharpness.
But he’ll have to fight to reclaim his position in the team, as United’s offense has changed dramatically since he last played in it.
Although Daniel James left the club last summer, the additions of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo have raised the level of contention for positions.
Rashford will compete for Paul Pogba’s left-wing role, which he has excelled in during his absence this season.
To start the season, the Frenchman has seven assists in five Premier League games.
When Rashford recovers, he’ll almost certainly be pushed into midfield permanently, with Jesse Lingard and Mason Greenwood also vying for winger spots.
