Marcus Rashford tweets positive update on shoulder injury, set to see doctor on Friday

Manchester United winger Marcus Rashford has offered an update on his bothersome shoulder injury which has kept him out of play for the entirety of the season so far.

The 23-year-old managed the problem throughout the last campaign, first complaining of pain in his shoulder as far back as November 2020.

Rashford continued to play with the problem, however and kept fit for the reason of the season before taking part in this summer’s European Championship with England.

The Wythenshawe-born player was a mainstay in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side last season, featuring on the left-hand side whenever he was deemed fit to participate.

“Happy Monday,” he wrote in a tweet, as seen above. “I see the doctor on Friday for a consultation. All being well, I will get the green to join in with contact training again.”

The update is a positive one from Rashford, who confirms that a return to full training with his teammates is getting ever closer. Final consultation with his doctor will determine whether he is fit to resume with the squad. Manchester United are in dire need of their star, having notched up 20-goal seasons or more in the last two campaigns.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had started the Premier League season in promising fashion before surprisingly succumbing to defeat against Aston Villa last weekend.
