Marcus Rashford Out for Three Months with Back Issue

Marcus Rashford

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, confirmed Marcus Rashford could be out for three months after suffering a back injury in the FA Cup’s third-round match, which United won 1-0 over Wolves Wanderers.

Rashford injured his back against Burnley in the Premier League on December 29, and he also missed the clash with Liverpool on Sunday. The England international will be sidelined at least until April.

“I never put myself before the team. I always put the team and the club before anything else. Marcus has had minor discomfort in his back since the Burnley game, two weeks before this game (Wolves).

“We’ve had scans, we’ve monitored him, there was no injury there, just complaints. I had a conversation with him two days before and told him I was going to rest him.

“He felt fine and was very adamant that if needed, he could do at least half an hour as we wanted to go through in the cup. That shows you Marcus’s attitude.

“That is part of what you do for United. Every time you play, you put your body on the line. I’ve suffered some injuries for the club and that is what you are proud to do when you are a Man United player.” Solskjaer added.

Rashford has 14 goals in 22 games so far this season, and he’s a player that the Red Devils just can’t afford to lose. He’s their real pure striker.

“That is the million-dollar question for us because Marcus has been fantastic. Someone has got to step up.” Solskjaer said.

“If we find something in the transfer market, that might be one solution. But the best solution is the players stepping up and making sure they are ready and taking the chance.” he added.
