ten Hag calls for referees to protect players after Rashford’s injury

During Manchester United’s victory over Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, Marcus Rashford had to leave the pitch due to a limp

During the final 10 minutes of Manchester United’s 2-0 Premier League win against Everton at Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford had to be substituted due to what appeared to be a groin injury.

The striker gestured to the bench to be replaced, then limped off the pitch and straight down the tunnel.

This could be a major concern for the Red Devils as they prepare for their Europa League quarter-final first leg against Sevilla on Thursday.

Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag slammed the fixture schedule when discussing Rashford’s injury. He told BT Sport: “We have to wait, he doesn’t look well. Once again that is due to the schedule. It can’t be you play three games in six days. We have to protect our players.”

Rashford has been having an outstanding season, being the top scorer for the team with 28 goals in all competitions.

The extent of his injury is now a cause for concern for manager Erik ten Hag. Man Utd now awaits further information on its severity.

Manchester United are set to host Sevilla in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday. The Europa league clash is followed by an away game against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League.
