The striker has been sidelined since the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, but has now successfully undergone surgery and is on his way to recovery
According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Marcus Rashford is ‘very happy’ about how his shoulder surgery went, while the Manchester United forward returns after the training session with the club.
The striker has been sidelined since the Euro 2020 final at Wembley after deciding to undergo a procedure to rectify the long-standing problem, excluding him from the first weeks of the new term.
But with the success of the operation, the man from England has now returned to the club’s facilities while intensifying his rehabilitation, and his manager has noticed that he was returning a bit.
What was said?
“He looked very happy with the operation,” Solskjaer told United’s website before his team’s trip to Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.
“He works out in the gym, we see him every day, so he’s a little jerky when it’s getting closer to the time he can come back.”
The Norwegian has also promised to expect Rashford to return in rich form, having struggled at various points in the last half of last season
“Of course it’s a difficult time every time you’re off with an injury, but it’s also a time to think and find yourself again,” he added. “This is what we hope will happen to Marcus.
The bigger picture
While Rashford’s hit-and-miss form on the field has provided club care for both United and England during the latter half of the 2020-21 campaign, his charitable actions have inspired new generations out of it.
Solskjaer has already supported the 23-year-old, along with new yard Jadon Sancho, to return from the sadness of their penalty goals against Italy during the defeat of the Euro 2020 final of the three lions.
Now, with his latest move on the road to a full recovery, the forward will have hopes of appearing for the Red Devils again sooner rather than later.
