Manchester United has confirmed that Marcus Rashford will be absent for the next few games.
The injury rules him out of the Europa League quarter-final first leg against Sevilla on Thursday and also additional upcoming games.
Despite a good season with 28 goals in 47 matches, Rashford will now be absent from the team for a few games.
Rashford’s absence at this stage of the season, when United have important matches, will be a hard blow to the Red Devils
Manchester United’s statement reads: “Marcus Rashford will be unavailable for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League quarter-final game against Sevilla because of a muscle injury.
“The forward was withdrawn in the 80th minute of Saturday’s 2-0 Premier League win over Everton at Old Trafford and immediately headed to the dressing room for treatment.
“Subsequent assessment of the injury suggested that Marcus will be unavailable for a few games, but is expected to be back for the season run-in.”
During ten Hag’s news conference before Thursday’s match, he was asked if Rashford would return for the FA Cup semi-final against Brighton on April 22 and he replied: “It’s a few games, that’s the statement. I can’t give more details because we don’t know. We have to see how the injury develops.
“Of course, it’s a setback and he’s disappointed about it but he’s not totally broken because he knows he will return quickly so he’s optimistic. He’s started straight on his recovery and rehab, which helps to get back soon.”
