Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has decided to undergo shoulder surgery ahead of the start of the 2021-22 season, meaning he will miss a few months of the new season.
According to The Athletic, the Englishman had contemplated having the operation after the loss to Villarreal in the Europa League final but wanted to play in the just concluded Euro 2020 championship for his nation England.
Now, the Englishman was forced to undergo surgery because his shoulder injury was holding him back during games, especially affecting his speed.
Rashford was equally forced to guard the injured shoulder and couldn’t go into challenges properly because of fear of aggravating it, making his impact in games limited.
As a result, the 23-year-old had to regularly take painkilling injections for his shoulder and could not even properly lift weights in the gym.
The United no.10 has taken this decision with his long-term future in mind and knows he’ll heal from surgeries sooner now than later in the future.
Marcus Rashford is also suffering from issues in his ankle and might be forced to undergo a procedure to fix that too if deemed necessary. Besides, it would help him recover at the same time while recovering from his shoulder surgery.
