Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been out of action since January when he picked up an injury in the FA Cup win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Rashford is utilising the current break to his satisfaction, revealing that he feels “much better” now. The club’s top scorer this season has continued his rehabilitation despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis, working from home as an option to continue his recovery.

“I feel much better,” Rashford told Sky Sports News. “I have a scan in another couple of days and that should solidify it, but I feel much better compared to two or three weeks ago.

“I feel 10 times better now. For me, now it’s just about getting ready to build back up to training and then playing games for the team.

“I’m in a much better place. I’m much happier than I was about a month ago, so things are looking positive.”

The restrictions given as a results of controlling the spread of the current COVID-19 has led to the England international carrying out his rehabilitation at home.

“Everyone is just dealing with the circumstances as well as they can,” he added. “I’ve just been in my house doing my gym work and recovery, reading books, watching Netflix and just doing what I can do to make the time pass further.

“There’s not really anything you can do that comes close to being in the changing room and being in the team, so I’m not trying to chase that high.

“I had to have time off anyway because of my injury, but I’m fortunate enough to have a bike in the gym downstairs. Not much in that sense has actually changed for me because I can still do my daily routine that I was doing.”

The forward is hopeful of joining his teammates in training once they are instructed to resume from the break.
