Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed that Marcus Rashford will be out of action for at least six weeks.
Solskjaer revealed that the forward has suffered a double stress fracture in his back.
Rashford was absent in United 2-0 to Liverpool on Sunday, having sustained the injury during their FA Cup third-round replay victory against Wolves in midweek.
Solskjaer was initially optimistic about the England international playing against the league leaders at Anfield, he has now revealed details of a longer lay-off.
“He’s suffered a bad injury,” Solskjaer said in a post-match interview to Sky Sports.
“It’s a [back] stress fracture, it happened against Wolves.
“It’s not happened before, it happened there and then. He’ll be out for a while. He won’t be back until after the mid-season break.
“[It’s] normally six weeks to heal, but I’m not a doctor, and then he needs rehab after that probably.”
Rashford has been United’s best player of the season, hitting 20 goals in all competitions for the first time in his career.
