Man United Striker Rashford on Medical Leave ‘For a While’ With Back Injury

The manager of Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, confirmed on Sunday that striker Marcus Rashford is facing a lengthy stay off the field, saying that the player suffered a stress fracture during Wednesday’s match against the Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"He’s suffered a bad injury. Yeah it’s a stress fracture, it happened against Wolves. It’s not happened before, it happened there and then. He’ll be out for a while. He won’t be back until after the mid-season break. Normally six weeks to heal, but I’m not a doctor, and then he

needs rehab after that probably," Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

Regarding the team’s plans to cover Rashford's absence, Solskjaer did not commit to a replacement, noting instead that Man United will “have to look at it closely” to handle the set-back.

"We might look at

some short-term deals. We are looking at numbers," the manager added.

On Sunday, Manchester United lost a match against rival Liverpool at Anfield (0 – 2), failing to end Red's winning streak following the kickoff of the current Premier League season.
