Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed it is ‘touch and go’ if Marcus Rashford plays again this season.
The England international has been sidelined for more than a month after suffering a double stress fracture of the back in United’s FA Cup third-round replay against Wolves.
Rashford has a double stress fracture in his back
Speaking ahead of United’s Europa League round of 32 first-leg clash against Club Brugge, Solskjaer said: I would hope hes playing this season. It will just be touch and go towards the end.
Hopefully we can get through this tournament and prolong the season. It takes time, Im not a doctor.
“I was hoping he would recover quicker than what it looks like hes going to be out for.
Another few months definitely. If hes not fit enough he wont go (to the Euros). He had a scan and it was maybe more severe than what we hoped and expected.

He felt fine a few days before that. I didnt know it takes that time to recover. When it heals he will be stronger for it so its important we dont rush.
Rashford, 22, has dazzled this season for the Red Devils with 14 goals and four assists in 22 appearances.
But there are fears he could even miss out on Euro 2020 – spelling more bad news for Gareth Southgate, who is already sweating over the fitness of captain Harry Kane.
