Marcus Rashford set to miss opening months of season (Details)

Manchester United reveals when Marcus Rashford will be back after shoulder surgery

Marcus Rashford is set to miss the first two months of Manchester United’s 2021/22 season after deciding to have surgery on a long-standing shoulder problem.

Rashford has been nursing the knock since November, treating the pain with injections. The forward was ever-present for United last season, making 57 appearances – the second most of anyone in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

His form tailed off somewhat towards the end of the campaign and this can perhaps be explained by the injury he was carrying. According to The Telegraph, Rashford is eager to undergo surgery to fix the problem, as he has concerns about how it might affect his long-term movement.

Although he would prefer to undergo the procedure immediately he is not expected to go under the knife until the end of July. Rashford would then have to wait six weeks before returning to training and a further six weeks until he returned to first team action.

Going by this timeline, he would miss his side’s opening eight Premier League matches as well as the opening of their Champions League campaign. It would be bad news for England also, with Rashford set to sit out of their 2022 World Cup qualifiers in September.
