Man United star Marcus Rashford suffered a back injury in January

He was set to miss the rest of the Premier League season and was a major doubt for Euro 2020, though he says he would have tried to play in the international tournament.

But the coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on the football schedule, meaning Rashford could now be fit when action does get back underway.

The top-flight is on hold with reports he could start again in mid-June and that has given Rashford plenty of time to recover.

How did Marcus Rashford get injured?

Rashford suffered his serious back injury after coming on as a substitute in United’s 1-0 FA Cup win over Wolves on January 15.

He came on in the second half but was forced off again just 15 minutes later.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer caught criticism after admitting he took a risk by playing a less than 100 per cent Rashford.

Rashford had scored 22 goals in 37 games for club and country before his injury blow.

When will Marcus Rashford be back?

Rashford was set to be out until late May, meaning he’d miss the rest of the season.

But as football has been put on hold due to the pandemic, Rashford could now play again when action eventually restarts.

Reports have claimed recently that the top-flight campaign will get back underway in June and so the 22-year-old should be fit.

He obviously would not have been able to play in any warm-up games so it will take time for the striker to get match-fit again.

What has been said?

Marcus Rashford said in March: “I feel much better.

“I feel, comparing it to two or three weeks ago, 10 times better and for me now it’s just about getting ready to build it back up to training and playing games with the team.

“I’m in a much better place, I’m much happier than I was about a month ago so things are looking positive.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after the injury: “He’s getting treatment now, he’s struggled with his back lately and he’s got another one.

“That backfired a little bit. Yes we got the goal and he was involved in the goal but it might have cost him.

“He’s a quick healer and he’ll play through some pain, definitely, if he’s capable and it’s not a bad, bad injury, but we’ve seen that he’s struggled lately.

“But that’s been more when he’s been tired. He wasn’t on long enough to be tired so it might be something that just happened there and then.

“He’s been absolutely top this season so we’ll do anything and everything we can to get him fit.”
