Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag ruled out star Marcus Rashford for their next outing in the Carabao Cup final when they will face Newcastle United.
The Red Devils’ star man came out with a potential injury, though not serious when seen from the naked eye, as Rashford came off limping from their Europa League second-leg clash against Barcelona.
The Englishman has terrorising defences both in European competition and the Premier League as Rashford has been in sensational form since the restart of club football from the World Cup. The 25-year-old has scored 13 goals in 15 appearances after the World Cup and he is having the best season of his life with a total of 24 goals in all competitions at a total until now.
Rashford has played a crucial role in Manchester United’s rejuvenation and now his potential absence for the Carabao Cup final is stirring up tensions among The Reds’ fanbase.
Manager Erik Ten Hag sounded a bit worried in the post-Barca press conference when he assessed the upcoming final and also remarked that Rashford is a ‘doubt’ for the final.
"“I don’t know [if Rashford will be available],”“Players are coming in now and we have to do medical investigations. We did some yesterday but it was so soon after the game, so most of the time you can’t say. You have to wait for the 100 per cent medical diagnosis.”"
The Dutch manager also ruled out striker Anthony Martial for the final:
"“No, he will not be available,”"
Meanwhile, Casemiro and Harry Maguire have returned to the team and is expected to be fully fit when Manchester United round-up against Newcastle United this weekend.
