Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Marcus Rashford will be released for England duty this week, despite carrying a foot injury.
The winger was not named in United’s squad for Sunday’s FA Cup clash against Leicester City.
Rashford was substituted at half-time in Thursday’s Europa League win against AC Milan and subsequent scans have shown the 23-year-old has sustained a foot injury.
Gareth Southgate named Rashford in England’s squad for upcoming matches against Albania, Poland and San Marino, despite the fact that United are keen for the forward to get a prolonged rest.
However, in a somewhat surprising admission, Solskjaer confirmed today that Rashford will be given permission to join up with the Three Lions. (Metro)
