Marcus Rashford ‘has been playing through pain for two years’ at Man Utd

Marcus Rashford has not played a single game for Manchester United or England without suffering from pain in over two years, according to reports.

The 23-year-old has battled niggling issues throughout the current season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer regularly casting doubt over his fitness.

Nonetheless, Rashford’s persistent shoulder and ankle complaints have not stopped him making an astonishing 51 appearances in all competitions, scoring 20 goals and picking up 13 assists.

There are concerns over the physical burden on the Red Devils academy graduate, however, as he has only had one extended spell out of the match-day squad over the last two campaigns.

That came last season, when he missed 14 matches with a back injury but still managed a career best tally of 22 goals, including 17 in the Premier League.

The wear and tear of the top flight is taking its toll and Rashford may require shoulder surgery, but he has informed Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate he will be available for the Euros.

Are Marcus Rashford’s ongoing injury problems a concern? Have your say in the comments.

That’s according to ESPN , which adds the foot injury he suffered last month will be carefully managed ahead of the summer tournament.

Rashford missed a total of four games with the issue: United’s 3-1 FA Cup defeat by Leicester City and England’s World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.

Since then, Rashford has started six of United’s last seven games, but he has not completed 90 minutes in any of them.

“Marcus, yeah, we’ve managed him and we’ve had to manage him for quite a while actually,” said Solskjaer in his most-recent update on the forward’s condition.

“Of course last year with his back, then he had his shoulders, which he’s recovered really well from, and I feel he’s gone through the worst of this foot as well and he almost played a full game against Leeds (last Sunday).”
