Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has submitted an injury update to Marcus Rashford after the club’s 1-0 win over Milan in the Europa League last night.
The Red Devils won the last 16 game against the Rossoneri, 2-1 on aggregate, and Paul Pogba was the match-changer in the San Siro with an early goal in the second half.
The Frenchman was a substitute for Rashford in the middle of the second leg of the second leg and that proved to be an ingenious blow from the Red Devils coach.
Speaking after the match, Solshire revealed that a substitution was imposed on him as Rashford suffered a minor muscle injury.
He added that he had taken precautionary measures with the attacker and expressed the hope that it would not be a serious injury.
He told Manutd.com, “With Marcus, he had a little tingling. We can’t take a risk with him but hopefully it isn’t so bad.”
Rashford has been a hugely influential figure in the club’s attack this season, scoring 18 goals and making 10 assists in 45 games.
The England international has shown phenomenal fitness and missed only one match for the club in all competitions.
The Red Devils face the FA Cup quarter-final match at Leicester City this weekend, and Solskjaer hopes Rashford will be available for selection.
Meanwhile, Pogba’s comeback after a month-long absence due to injury is a huge boost for United and the Frenchman showed his form against Milan.
