Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has confirmed he has undergone surgery on his shoulder and that the procedure “went well”.
The club confirmed last month that Rashford would undergo surgery on the problem, which the 23-year-old previously admitted had hampered him during the second half of last season.
The England international could be back training within five weeks of surgery but it would be approximately 12 weeks until he returned to action, potentially ruling him out until late October.
“Thank you for all the well wishes,” Rashford posted on Twitter.
“I had my surgery on Friday morning and everything went very well. A little sore but other than that I’m feeling good.”
Rashford, who made five substitute appearances for England during their run to the Euro 2020 final, wanted the operation done straight after the Euros but was made to wait for the availability of the requisite surgeon.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side kick off their Premier League season at home to Leeds on Saturday, while England have five World Cup qualifiers during the period Rashford could be absent for.
United said: “It remains to be seen when Marcus will return to action and we wish him well in his recovery.”
