If you listen to our podcast you will know Marcus Rashford has been playing through a pain barrier this season.
According to The Telegraph, Rashford will consider undergoing surgery on a shoulder injury after the European Championship finals with England this season.
The muscle tear was sustained in November when United lost 1-0 against Arsenal.
That has not stopped Rashford from playing every week. The forward has played in every one of United’s 42 games so far this season, yet his form has raised eyebrows at times.
James Ducker claims that ‘acute demands being placed on the 23-year-old’s body are starting to take their toll,’ which is something Solskjaer needs to consider as we reach the business stage of the season.
The injury is said to be having a negative impact on the player’s mobility and is becoming badly inflamed after matches.
While Rashford has managed to score 18 goals this season he has not been at his best. It’s not easy playing through pain.
He is expected to start in today’s Manchester derby, with United trying to cement their place in next season’s Champions League. Finishing season is not something we should be passing the opportunity to clinch.
Does this mean he will miss the start of next season?
