Rashford points to a rapid return to fitness after a back injury

LONDON: Marcus Rashford trust that he will return to action by United Manchester before the end of the season after suffering a back injury.

The UK and England striker faces a long layoff after suffering a back stress fracture last week. FA Cup third round repeat against Wolves .

The term for the recovery of the 22-year-old has not been clear, with his hopes of playing for England in Euro 2020 potentially in doubt, but hopes to return in due time.

Responding to a message of support on Wednesday, Rashford tweeted: Thank you guys, I will be back before the end of the season to help my team claim the top 4.

Rashford missed Sunday's loss in Liverpool with the problem, but before that he had started every Premier League game this season.

He has scored 19 goals for United in all competitions of this campaign and his absence will be a great blow since the team, currently fifth, seeks to claim a place in the Champions League.
