Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed that he feels ‘much better’ as he continues his recovery from a back injury.
The forward originally suffered the double stress fracture in January, originally ruling him out of seven Premier League games. It looked like his season was over but with the suspension of English football due to the coronavirus, it now looks like Rashford could play again in the 2019/20 season having stepped up his recovery.
Talking to Sky Sports News, he said: “I feel much better. I have a scan in another couple of days and that should solidify it, but I feel much better compared to two or three weeks ago.
“I feel 10 times better now. For me, now it’s just about getting ready to build up back up to training and then playing games for 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.”
The 22-year-old had been enjoying an impressive campaign prior to the coronavirus outbreak having netted 19 goals in all competitions, meaning that the current season was his most impressive to date in a Manchester United shirt.
Rashford currently sits at a price of 20/1 with the Betfair Exchange to finish the season as the top goalscorer in the league.
