Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has claimed that his injury was the reason he wasn’t included in England‘s latest squad.
Rashford has been on top form in recent weeks, scoring three goals in his last four matches including against Liverpool and Arsenal.
The 24-year-old missed United’s game against Real Sociedad last week in the Europa League due to an injury he sustained against Arsenal.
Erik ten Hag confirmed that Marcus Rashford endured a muscle injury against the Gunners, hence his absence from Manchester United‘s squad that will face Sheriff Tiraspol this evening in Moldova.
The Man United boss couldn’t confirm when Rashford would return back to training but does confirm that the United academy graduate won’t be out injured for too long.
Reports emerged this week that Gareth Southgate was interested in handing Rashford a call-up to join the England squad but when the official squad list was announced, Rashford wasn’t included.
And the Manchester United academy graduate has taken to Twitter to reveal why he wasn’t called up.
Good luck to the boys later today @ManUtd ⚽️💪🏾
In regards to @England every player wants to represent there country and I’m no different! Unfortunately I’m not ready yet as I’ve picked up an untimely injury. 🏴
