Erik ten Hag provides update on Marcus Rashford following serious injury concern.
Marcus Rashford limped off against Everton, and Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has provided a post-game update on the alleged injury.
After controlling a long pass against the Toffees, United’s leading scorer this season pulled up and made a quick gesture toward his groin.
Rashford limped off the field and down the tunnel after receiving physiotherapy.
For the final 10 minutes of United’s 2-0 victory, Wout Weghorst took his place.
Rashford once again demonstrated his value to Ten Hag’s team during the game by assisting Anthony Martial in scoring the game’s second goal. Additionally, United dominated for the majority of the 90 minutes.
At Old Trafford, however, his replacement will raise a lot of questions. Additionally, United’s upcoming schedule is jam-packed with events like the league season’s conclusion and a quarterfinal matchup against Sevilla in the Europa League.
Ten Hag updates Rashford’s injury.
After the victory, Ten Hag was asked by BT Sport if he could give an update on the alleged injury Rashford sustained.
“We must wait because it doesn’t seem good,” the Dutchman retorted.
“It’s because of the schedule; you can’t play three games in six days, the coach said. We need to protect our players. Everyone desires to have their best players on the field. Everyone enjoys watching entertaining football, but only when you have your best players on the field.”
Leon Osman, a former midfielder for Everton and England, shared his thoughts in the studio about what Rashford’s absence due to injury might mean for the team: “Given the impending important cup games, Marcus Rashford’s injury will be of concern.
“Sevilla at Old Trafford requires both your team’s goal scorers to be at the top of their game and for you to be optimistic. His performance this year has made him by far United’s best player. Because of this, you don’t want to miss him in April or during this pivotal matchup.
They will sincerely hope that this is only a minor cramp and not a 10-day injury.”
