Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why Marcus Rashford was knocked out against AC Milan and that doesn’t sound like good news.
The young Englishman didn’t have the best of halves against the Italian giants and was the man who was sent off the pitch for match winner Paul Pogba.
The former Juventus man has been very successful, scoring the most important goal and featuring a man of the match.
That meant Rashford’s substitution was all but forgotten, but it looks like his physical form is on the line as the season enters its home stretch.
The versatile forward has been playing through the pain barrier for a while now and there is a chance he will get a forced rest.
Solskjaer on Rashford: “Marcus had a little pang in his heart, we couldn’t take the risk, but I hope he won’t be too bad.”

It’s almost as if Rashford’s body is collapsing on top of him at this point, as he’s believed to be suffering from a shoulder injury as well.
The academy graduate is one of Solskjaer’s most used players and hardly seems to rest unless he takes a hit.
Rashford’s goals and assists this season in double digits mean he is clearly an important player for Manchester United and they will need him as soon as possible.
