Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United manager insists he will not rush the sensational English forward, Marcus Rashford, back from injury. Considering the Champions League qualification scenario, getting the player will be pivotal for Manchester United’s chances.

There has been some confusion over how long he will be absent as Marcus Rashford has been out since mid-January due to a back injury. Marcus Rashford came as a substitute for the Red Devils against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup fixture. Though Manchester United went on to seal the game, they lost the services of Marcus Rashford owing to the injury.

Although it was thought initially that Marcus Rashford could return in March, then it was suggested that he may miss the remainder of the season and Euro 2020.

Marcus Rashford might return for the closing stages of the Premier League season. Further scans at the end of February were “quite positive”, leading to new reports. Though it can help the team to end the season on now as they have had the worst start in the league for the first time in three decades, the Norweigan manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant that Manchester United will not throw him back into first-team football too soon and, however, erring on the side of caution.


Solskjaer told MUTV,

“As [with] any player, he wants to be fit as quickly as possible and play as soon as possible,”

If that means playing in April, if he’ll be fit for us towards the end of the season, fantastic. If it takes longer, it takes longer.

Also, the manager went on to say that the 22-year-old English international has a big role to play in the upcoming years for one of the best clubs in Europe. He said that he won’t be rushing the player to return early and will be sensible with the things.

We just have to be sensible with it because we’re going to have Marcus playing here for many, many years.

The scans were encouraging. He’s now working in the gym and in the pool, and he’s moving around better. He’s in and around the place.

“It’s like how long is a piece of rope [in terms of a return date]? It’s difficult.”

Though the manager didn’t tell the exact return date, it may be assumed that the player is nearing the return. With Manchester United playing their old foe, Derby County in the FA Cup fifth-round clash, they will be hoping to win the game and get into the next round. But, their winning chances hinge on the crucial players. Can Manchester United make it to the quarterfinals or Derby will spring a surprise?
