Manchester United handed Rashford boost

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provided a positive update about Marcus Rashford's back injury, saying the striker will return this season.

Rashford set to return this season in boost for Man Utd

Marcus Rashford is expected to make his return to first team duties towards the end of the season which is a huge boost for Manchester United, says manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Rashford, who has scored 19 goals this season, has been sidelined since mid-January due to a stress fracture affecting his back. But amid fears the forward would miss the rest of the campaign, Solskjaer revealed the 22-year-old England international was likely to return late in 2019-20.

"The scan came back quite positive," he told UK newspapers. "But we will give him the time he needs. He's desperate to come back, of course, but it'll be another couple of months before we see him, probably. We can't rush it, but when he is fit he will be stronger for it so when he comes back it's going to be a big boost for us."

While United are fifth in the Premier League ahead of visiting Everton on Sunday, they are in the FA Cup fifth round and Europa League last 16. Solskjaer said Rashford was eager to return as United chase some silverware this season.

"He's around the place, in the dressing room before games, at half-time. He wants the boys to do well so he can come back and play in the Europa League, the FA Cup final," he said. "He wants to be there when the business end comes."
