Manchester United Striker Marcus Rashford assures that he will before the end of the season as he recuperates from a stress fracture. "Blink and I'll be back, fitter than ever," he said via Twitter. Although Solksjaer has not given any assurance of his return this season, Rashford wrote on Wednesday: "I'll be back before the season ends to hopefully help my team claim top four."
Solkjaer is of the opinion that the 22-year will need at least six weeks of rest before he can even start training. "Marcus is going to get as long as he needs. We are not going to risk him when he has had an injury. When he comes back he will be 100% fit," Solskjaer said. He also debunked the allegations laid by former England forward Ian Wright of him putting his own needs ahead of those of Rashford by playing the forward against Wolves.
"I never put myself before the team," Solskjaer said. "I put the team and the club before anything else. Yes, he had minor discomfort but he had scans. We monitored him. We have to manage players every single day. There are loads of things Ian Wright, or anyone else, doesn't know about."
Solskjaer said Rashford was not suffering from a stress fracture prior to the Wolves game. "He trained the day before and did really well," he said. "He looked free. I asked him if he was OK to be on the bench and he said it was no problem."
