MARCUS RASHFORD RULED OUT UNTIL OCTOBER
Manchester United will have to kick start their season without their talisman Marcus Rashford after deciding he needs surgery on a shoulder injury.
The striker, who has been a victim of racist abuse after he missed his penalty in England’s Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy on Sunday, may not be available for United until the end of October.
Rashford, 23 was hampered by the shoulder muscle tear last season and was picked in the Euro squad despite not being 100% fit. He underwent a scan on Tuesday and a decision was taken that surgery was the only option. However, it is understood the operation will not take place for a couple of weeks. It is likely he will be out of action for 12 weeks but has an outside chance of returning for United’s Premier League match against Liverpool at Old Trafford on 23 October.
