Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed that Marcus Rashford will be out of action for at least six weeks, following a double stress fracture in his back
The striker was absent as United lost 2-0 to Liverpool on Sunday, having sustained the injury during their FA Cup third-round replay victory against Wolves in midweek.
Although Solskjaer was initially optimistic about the England international featuring this weekend at Anfield, he has now revealed details of a longer lay-off.
“He’s suffered a bad injury,” Solskjaer revealed post-match to Sky Sports.
“It’s a [back] stress fracture, it happened against Wolves.
“It’s not happened before, it happened there and then. He’ll be out for a while. He won’t be back until after the mid-season break.
“[It’s] normally six weeks to heal, but I’m not a doctor, and then he needs rehab after that probably.”
