Marcus Rashford gives fitness update as he closes in on return

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford says he hopes to rejoin full training from next week.

Rashford underwent a shoulder operation in the summer and was also able to rehabilitate a foot injury.

Now he says he will get the chance for a full training return if he is given the green light on Friday.


Return after international break

United play Everton on Saturday and Rashford won’t be involved in that fixture as it will come too soon.

He won’t be in the England squad either, so he will get a couple of weeks of full training, albeit in a limited squad, to prepare for his return.

Rashford’s comeback match is likely to be against Leicester City on October 16.

He will then be eligible for United’s third Champions League fixture, at home to Atalanta, before matches at home to Liverpool and away at Tottenham to end the month.

Amid this gauntlet of tough fixtures, Rashford’s return is perfectly timed, especially with the goals drying up a little.

Rashford scored 21 goals and provided 12 assists last season and he will be will be looking to get close to those numbers this season again despite missing the first couple of months of action.
