Man Utd given boost as Marcus Rashford is ‘two weeks ahead of schedule’

Manchester United have been given a huge boost as Marcus Rashford steps up his recovery from shoulder surgery. Rashford underwent the procedure earlier this month but has already returned to individual sessions at Carrington.

Rashford played the entirety of 2021 with an injury to his shoulder, having sustained the injury late in 2020. The 23-year-old managed the problem as the season went on but decided to press ahead with plans to address it during the off-season.

Rashford’s involvement in this summer’s European Championship meant that surgery had to wait until later in the summer and with two games played in the Premier League so far, he is now ‘two weeks ahead of schedule’.

That’s according to The Athletic journalist Laurie Whitwell (speaking on Talk of the Devils), who claims that originally, Rashford was planned to return to action within 8-12 weeks of going under the knife.

The suggestion that he is two weeks ahead of schedule could mean that he makes an appearance for the club as early as next month.
