Solskjaer explains when Rashford surgery decision will be made

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that a decision on Marcus Rashford’s bothersome shoulder is yet to be taken but a final decision could come very soon.

The 23-year-old winger has struggled with the injury since late last year and played the better part of last season with a shoulder problem. Rashford could often be seen clutching his left side and was visibly restricted in some of his movements.

Earlier this month, a report claimed that Rashford had decided to press ahead with plans to have surgery on the shoulder, the winger projected to be on the sidelines for three months.

Solskjaer has insisted that no such decision has been made and that the England international will be assessed in the coming days upon his return from holiday.

“First with Marcus, we’ll make a decision in the next few days when we check him up again,” Solskjaer told after Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Brentford.

“We’ll see what’s best for him and what’s best for the club, that has to be considered. We think about every single player’s and the club’s best pathway – what’s best for this season, what’s best for the future”

Rashford, like all the other internationals, including Jadon Sancho, Harry Maguire, and Luke Shaw, is expected back on Monday for training and will be assessed then, it is believed.
