This Friday, the coach of Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, gave a press conference and spoke about Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire. The striker, who operated on his shoulder, will be related to Saturday’s match against Leicester City. The defender is still recovering from a calf injury.
“Yes him [Rashford] is among those listed. Whether it will start or not, I can’t say right now, as it wouldn’t be right. But he worked very hard during the entire period away. It’s been really brilliant this week,” he said.
“We had a 60-minute game with closed gates last week, so he’s in shape and looking forward to playing,” added the Red Devils.
A team standout in recent years, Rashford underwent shoulder surgery after experiencing pain at the end of last season. The striker has not played an official match since July 11, when he entered the final of the Eurocup, which ended with Italy title on penalties.
Defender Harry Maguire, who injured his calf, is in the final recovery process. However, the English defender will not participate in United’s next match in the Premier League. Beyond, Raphael Varane was also injured and will be out “for a few weeks”.
Fourth place in the Premier League, Manchester United faces Leicester, away from home, on Saturday, at 16:00 (GMT). The match is valid for the 8th round of the competition.
