Man Utd forward Marcus Rashford is confident of returning to action before the end of the current campaign.

The Red Devils and England international forward is facing a lengthy lay-off after due to a stress fracture injury of the back in last week’s FA Cup third-round game against Wolves.

The timeframe for Rashford’s recovery has been unclear, with his hopes of playing for his country at Euro 2020 potentially in doubt, however, he hopes to make a return to first-team football as soon as possible.

Responding to a message of support, Rashford tweeted: “Thanks guys, I’ll be back before the season ends to hopefully help my team claim top 4.”

The 20-times English champions have been unclear how long their key man will be out with head-coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer initially speaking only of a minimum out for the rest of the season.

He revised that at a press conference on Tuesday, revealing that Marcus Rashford would be “out for a few months” however, still no firm timeframe has been made public.

English centre-forward suffered the injury last Wednesday after coming on as a substitute against Wolves. He has played for just 16 minutes before being taken off.

He had suffered back pain in previous weeks, however, Norwegian boss insisted the latest problem was a fresh one.

Rashford missed last Sunday’s loss at Liverpool, however, prior to that had started every Premier League game this campaign for the.

He has found back of the net 19 times in all competitions this season and his absence will be a huge blow as the team, currently fifth, look to claim a top-four place.
