Marcus Rashford was subbed off in Thursday’s UEL win against AC Milan.
The 23-year old forward was replaced by Paul Pogba who went on to score the winning goal of the match and helped the squad progress towards the quarter-finals.
He returned from a minor ankle injury he sustained in the Manchester derby this month and manager Ole Gunnar Solskajaer is not sure whether he will feature in Sunday’s FA Cup clash against Leicester City.
“Marcus had a twinge, we couldn’t take a risk with him,” the United manager said. “Hopefully he won’t be too bad.
Rashford although convinced that there is no risk of aggravating his shoulder or suffering from burnout.
“I just focus on the next game at hand and that’s how I deal with [the shoulder injury],” he said. “What’s needed after we’ll deal with that after, but my main focus is just to be available for the games.”
“I know my body and I know what I can do physically and that’s it. I take one game at a time and it’s the life of footballer.
“We can rest when we retire and for now I want to play as much as I can. I recover from games quite well and from injuries I have no doubts, so I have no worries.”
