Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford to undergo surgery

Thursday, August 5, 2021 • Tamil Sport News Comments

Manchester United striker and English footballer Marcus Rashford will undergo a shoulder surgery and might not be available during the initial few weeks of the upcoming premier league season due to an extended period of rehabilitation.

In a recently issued statement, the club said, "Following consultation between Marcus, the manager, club medical staff and specialists, Marcus will undergo surgery imminently to resolve his shoulder injury. He will now focus on his rehabilitation in order to return as soon as possible." Rashford last played for England during the European Championship. The striker later explained the reason behind deciding to undergo the surgery at the start of the 2020-21 season.

Rashford informed on social media, "I've read some call me selfish for holding off getting the surgery this season but it was never about putting myself first and that's how we've reached this point, and something as a 23-year-old I've had to learn the hard way. To guarantee I can play this game as long as possible I need to listen to my body. Everyone has an opinion but no one knows my body better than me."

"I didn't want to let anyone down but ultimately looking at some of my performances towards the end of last season I felt like I was. When I step on the pitch I always give 100%. Physically my 100% just wasn't possible. I'm walking away from last season with 36 goal contributions, but more importantly I'm walking away with lessons learnt. We live and we learn as they say but what is never in doubt is my commitment to the club and the national team. It's been a hard one but I'm coming back physically and mentally stronger," he concluded.
