Marcus Rashford has confirmed that he has finally had his operation on a troublesome shoulder on Friday morning and has now returned home to begin his recovery.
The 23-year-old took to social media on Tuesday afternoon to share a positive update with supporters.
“Thank you for all the well wishes,” he wrote. “I had my surgery on Friday morning and everything went very well. A little sore but other than that I’m feeling good. Hope you’re all having a great day!”
United themselves wrote on the club’s official website:
“In a sign of his immense character and willingness to help the team, Marcus played through the pain barrier for much of last season and still racked up 64 appearances for club and country.
“Rashford’s last match was with England in the Euro 2020 final and, after further assessments on his injury were made and following a much-deserved holiday, his surgery took place last week.
“Naturally, Rashford has missed all of United’s pre-season campaign so far and will not be involved in this weekend’s much-anticipated Premier League opener against Leeds at Old Trafford.
“It remains to be seen when Marcus will return to action and we wish him well in his recovery.”
