Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Marcus Rashford must prioritise his football. If he wants to fulfil the dual requirements of playing for his club and country.

Solskjaer believes it is time for Rashford to focus on football after winning many hearts for his off-field efforts to end child hunger and anti-poverty campaigns.

The England international is yet to feature this season after having surgery for a shoulder injury he picked up last season. Rashford returned to contact training earlier this month. And can make his first appearance of the season today in the Premier League clash against Leicester City.

Rashford was awarded an MBE in 2020 for his honourable work. And received an honorary degree from the University of Manchester earlier this month.

Marcus Rashford is back in the United squad to face Leicester City after recovering from shoulder surgery.

Ole Gunnar on Rashford: “He has done some fantastic things and now maybe prioritise his football and focus on football. Because he’s got a challenge on his hands here at Man United, he has a challenge on his hands to play for England.”. ‘He knows that we want a lot from him. But we are going to give him the time he needs to get back to what he was and what he can be.’ 

According to reports, United asked Rashford to bulk up to protect against further injury in future. He has put on 4kg in muscle on his lower body. He did triple sessions on the pitch and in the gym during his rehabilitation.

Rashford excited to play alongside his favourite player Cristiano Ronaldo as Ole Gunnar confirmed his return

Rashford has already talked about his football return and getting to play with his favourite player Cristiano Ronaldo. “That’s a great feeling for me, as a player, but also as a fan of the club as well. “It’s always nice when a club legend finds a way back to the club. To be playing with him back at Old Trafford is a terrific feeling and hopefully gives us a push to start winning more trophies.”

Rashford still just 23 years old, has already made over 270 appearances for Manchester United and has 46 caps for England.
