Manchester United’s number ten was pictured for the first time at Carrington.

The club posted photos of Marcus Rashford on social media when he returned to training.

Rashford had a shoulder operation in late July.

Earlier this week, he posted a positive update on his recovery on Twitter.

That came on the basis of reports that it could be back in action earlier than the expected return date in October.

It’s great to see him back on the lawn before the end of August and it seems recovery is going well.

Don’t rush him back

It’s still unclear when Rashford will be ready for games, but that seems like a while ago.

He was only shown running alone and was not seen playing the gameplay with teammates.

It’s frustrating that Rashford had to miss the start of the season, but the main benefit is that he has the opportunity to rest and fully recover from the injuries that have plagued him since 2020.

Which means United Rashford shouldn’t rush back into the games despite the early positive step he made with his recovery.
