Marcus Rashford has gone away to “consider” on whether or not to have surgery at the end of the month, according to Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Rashford consulted a doctor last week and believes that surgery is the only option to treat a shoulder condition that has plagued him for the past seven months.
Solskjaer and his team, on the other hand, do not appear to be convinced. Solskjaer remarked following United’s 2-1 pre-season win against Derby that a final decision has still to be made. “Marcus went away to think about it a little bit,” the United manager explained. “We must choose the best path forward for him and the club. We still need to talk to the specialists about it.”
Solskjaer’s side, which was devoid of its Euro 2020 stars, scored goals at Derby thanks to Tahith Chong, who will spend the season on loan at Birmingham, and Uruguayan prodigy Facundo Pellistri, 19. For Wayne Rooney’s Championship team, Colin Kazim-Richards responded.
New signing Tom Heaton and Jesse Lingard, who has returned to the club after a loan spell at West Ham, both put in standout performances that put them on the verge of earning a place in Gareth Southgate’s England team for the Euros.
