Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still insists Marcus Rashford will return to action after the international break despite him taking part in the first-team training.
Rashford, for the first time since last season, trained with his Man United teammates on Friday ahead of this weekend’s clash against Everton in the Premier League.
The 23-year-old forward underwent shoulder surgery shortly after the Euro 2020 and as a result, he hasn’t featured for the Red Devils this season.
His return to the first team training today hands Manchester United a huge boost ahead of what many described as hectic months.
The Man United boss said Rashford has not had any contact on his shoulder and predicted that if the England international can receive hits on his shoulder without any reaction, he should be fit after the international break.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides update on Marcus Rashford after the star returned to first-team training “Marcus [Rashford] is fit, he’s worked really hard, but he’s not had any contact [until now],” said Solskjaer.
“If his shoulder can take the contact now, he should be ready after the internationals.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Marcus Rashford will be fully fit after the international break Manchester United will welcome Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime and Solskjaer wasn’t happy with the match setup, insisting that United, who played on Wednesday in the Champions League, should have played on Sunday.
Solskjaer reacts to Manchester United early kick-off vs Everton “Absolutely no explanation, well it’s TV. It’s absolutely no common sense at all,” Solskjaer told MUTV. “We had the same scenario last year when we played in Turkey and came back and played Everton.
“Us and Chelsea played Wednesday night, we could have easily played Sunday and the Liverpool – Man City should have been a Saturday one. Common sense might not be so common unfortunately.”
