Manchester United’s injury crisis

Gareth Southgate has confirmed the news that Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford suffered an injury blow during the international break.

Manchester United are certainly not having a problem free international period.

That is because Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s squad is dwindling following injuries during the break.

Luke Shaw had to pull out of the England squad due to injury, as did Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic from their respective nations.

Victor Lindelöf also withdrew from the Sweden squad due to ‘personal reasons’.

Marcus Rashford reportedly joined that list this week with talk that the forward had picked up an ankle injury.

Now, Gareth Southgate has confirmed the blow for Manchester United.

Rashford returns to Man United

Speaking to the press ahead of England’s clash with the Czech Republic, Southgate explained that ‘it was clear’ Rashford wouldn’t feature in either of their games and has been sent back to Man United.

“He’s been with our medical team all week and tried to take part in training,” Southgate explained, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News. 

“It’s clear he’s not going to be ready for our matches so we’ll send him back to the club and he’s out of our two games.

“We knew a couple of days ago Marcus wouldn’t be ready for tomorrow but it’s a great opportunity for a few others.

“We’ve lost a lot of players but it’s an opportunity for others.”
