Marcus Rashford has confirmed that he is “completely injury free” after a long period of rehabilitation.
After undergoing shoulder surgery earlier this summer, Rashford won’t have to make his first appearance in the 2021/22 season, despite having played five times for England at Euro 2020.
However, the winger scored two goals in a recent friendly against Blackburn Rovers and believes he is in “a far better place” now.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Rashford said, “My recovery is – I wouldn’t say it’s coming to an end because of course I still have to take care of it – but I’m in a much better place physically and mentally.
“Last year was a very long season for me, I picked up this injury at the end of September and it gradually got a little worse. But now I’m completely free of it, I feel a lot better physically and mentally.”
Rashford has scored 88 goals and 56 assists in 271 games for Manchester United and is set to face Leicester City on Saturday.
