Marcus Rashford has confirmed that ‘everything went well’ following his shoulder surgery
Rashford had been struggling with an issue after sustaining a muscle tear back in November
Adding a supplementary caption, Rashford wrote: ‘Thank you for all the well wishes. I had my surgery on Friday morning and everything went very well.
‘A little sore but other than that I’m feeling good. Hope you’re all having a great day!’
In late July it was confirmed that Rashford would be going under the knife following a short holiday and rest away from football, after struggling with an ongoing issue after suffering a muscle tear in November.
United were hoping that a three-week break after Euro 2020 would ease the problem
However, he returned from a holiday feeling an operation was still the best course of action
The forward was part of Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the European Championships, though found his game time limited.
Following the tournament – in which the he missed a penalty against Italy in the Wembley final – Rashford released a statement in which he admitted he struggled last season both on and off the pitch.
Rashford had a scan on the shoulder in Liverpool last month which revealed that the muscle tear is unlikely to get any worse. However, he wanted the problem cured once and for all after requiring painkilling injections to play last season.
The forward is optimistic of getting back onto the pitch by October, though is set to miss a chunk of United’s fixtures in the opening months of the campaign.
