Extent of Man United injury problem revealed in report

There’s a real excitement amongst the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern following their 4-0 win over West Ham United over the course of the weekend. 

Indeed, Jose Mourinho’s side looked mightily impressive at Old Trafford, with star striker Romelu Lukaku looking like he’ll adapt to life at the Theatre of Dreams with ease. The Belgian, along with his teammate Marcus Rashford, look like forming a devastating duo.

Rashford is a fan favourite in the Tavern. Having enjoyed a meteoric rise from the club’s youth ranks, the England international is now one of the most exciting marksmen in Europe.

His stunning rise is made all the more interesting, following reports from the Sun. They claim the 19-year-old was suffering a secret back injury for most of last season as a result of growing pains.

Mourinho has previously spoken of Rashford’s growth and the forward is believed to be an inch taller than he was upon the 54-year-old’s arrival in Manchester. In fact, his growing pains reportedly got so bad last season that he’d have to travel down to games separately to avoid sitting on the train.

The ailment is understood to have been kept as a secret to avoid opposition players targeting the area and the punters propping up our bar are praising Mourinho’s management.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Now his problem has cleared up, Rashford can enjoy what looks like being his truly breakthrough campaign. Injury free and boasting a new physical prowess, the England international can really kick on now under Mourinho.
