Manchester United have confirmed that Marcus Rashford will undergo shoulder surgery, thus he will miss for 12 weeks.
A United statement read: “Following consultation between Marcus, the manager, club medical staff and specialists, Marcus will undergo surgery imminently to resolve his shoulder injury.
“He will now focus on his rehabilitation in order to return as soon as possible.”
The 23-year-old player admitted last month that the shoulder complaint was among the physical issues he felt hampered his form during the second half of the 2020-21 campaign.
“I think I had 36 goal involvements, so I can’t look back at the year and say ‘mmm, I should have taken time off to do this and do that’. That’s just not the way I look at things. I just want to be available for every game.”
Asked if there is a physical reason, Rashford said on England duty: “I don’t think that’s a secret, to be honest with you.
“I think it’s quite well known and to get to this stage where I am now, it was a massive aim of mine back at the beginning of the season.
“So, like I said, I’m happy, I’m prepared mentally and physically for the games.”
