Manchester United have most of their players back, says Rashford

Marcus Rashford was happy to report that most of his Manchester United team-mates have returned to training at Carrington – after the training ground was shut down for the first team a week ago.

The training complex was temporarily closed down amid the spread of COVID-19 cases but thankfully it reopened on Tuesday, with Cristiano Ronaldo spotted at training on Wednesday.

A rise in COVID-19 cases at United saw our games against Brentford and Brighton postponed, but it looks like next Monday’s trip to Newcastle is going ahead.

It caused disruption to Ralf Rangnick’s plans in training as he tries to implement his philosophy on the team, plus United are now playing catch-up in the Premier League.

Speaking to club media after training earlier today, Rashford says everyone has handled the recent postponements professionally, with excitement building over our return to action.

“The lads have been training and today we brought all the rest of the lads back to training, there are only a couple left that will be coming in tomorrow,” said Rashford, as per

“So, we’ve pretty much got the full squad back, which is a positive going into the week.”

Rashford will hopefully improve over the coming weeks because he has yet to show his best form this season, after recovering from an operation on his shoulder, but it’s also important to note that it will take the entire team time to adjust to the new manager’s ways.

The forward states that everyone at the club is trying their utmost to set the record straight this season, and that means building on recent wins over Norwich and Crystal Palace.

Fingers crossed neither of the team’s involved next Monday have any positive cases to report over the next week (and beyond!).
