Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that Marcus Rashford is reflecting on whether to have surgery in the following weeks. Rashford has had trouble with his shoulder in the past few months. After visiting a specialist, it was found out that the only possible solution for the problem would be surgery. After their friendly win against Derby, Solskjaer revealed that a final decision on the surgery was yet to be taken.
“Marcus went away to reflect on it a little bit,” Solskjaer said about Manchester United winger Marcus Rashford. “We have to take the best course of action for him and the club. We still need to address it with the experts.”
Tahith Chong and Facundo Pellistri scored the United goals while Colin Kazim-Richards pulled one back for Derby. United were without a host of first-team payers as they were out after Euro 2020. The best performances were from Tom Heaton and Jesse Lingard. The latter enjoyed a scintillating second half of the season when he was loaned out to West Ham United.
“Jesse wants to fight for his place,” added Solskjaer. “What he did last season, that is the true Jesse. We showed towards the end of the season that we lacked some options at times and Jesse is in the plans at the moment.”
“Tom is here to give the others a bit of a challenge,” said Solskjaer. “He wants to play as well. He has been unlucky with injuries otherwise he would have been in the England squad.”
