Marcus Rashford has returned to Manchester United training

According to the Daily MailMarcus Rashford has returned to Manchester United training as the 23-year-old begins the recovery process after his shoulder operation.

The Englishman was playing through an injury for the most part of last season but chose to continue playing at the time as the Red Devils were in the hunt to finish in the Top 4 while they were also in contention for the Europa League. 

Post the end of the season, Rashford would have wanted to be available for selection for England at the Euros. He did end up helping the nation to the final of the competition, where they bowed out on penalties to Italy; the 23-year-old also ended up missing one of the decisive kicks.

However, the player eventually underwent operation on his shoulder earlier this summer and has already started his recovery process. 

The Englishman was spotted earlier this week at the club’s Carrington complex for the first time after his shoulder operation and the player was greeted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the duo shared a chat before the 23-year-old continued with his sessions. 

The Norwegian boss will be happy with the player’s progress especially after he played a crucial role for the club last season as he managed to score 21 goals and provide 15 assists in 57 appearances across all competitions.

Once the Englishman does return, he is expected to fight Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood for a place on the wings. Rashford’s versatility also makes him an option for the Red Devils as a centre-forward. 

The player will be available for selection only in October after he is declared completely fit by the medical staff at the club, however, his return will be timely as the club look to compete actively on all fronts this season.
