The England international faces months on the side-lines after suffering a double stress fracture of the back.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been unable to put a timeframe on his star player’s return to action, casting doubt on whether he will feature again for his club this season and also his participation in Euro 2020 this summer.
The 22-year-old however is hopeful however he will still have a role to play this term.
He wrote on Twitter: “I’ll be back before the season ends to hopefully help my team claim top four.”
Thanks guys, I’ll be back before the season ends to hopefully help my team claim top 4 👊🏾 https://t.co/JhTUi8yzLO— Marcus Rashford (@MarcusRashford)January 22, 2020
Solskjaer has said it will be at least six weeks before Rashford is fit to start training, with the United boss insisting he will give the striker ‘as long as he needs’ to complete his recovery.
"We are not going to risk him when he has had an injury. When he comes back he will be 100% fit."
