Marcus Rashford has targeted Manchester United’s clash with bitter rivals Liverpool for his comeback.
After having a shoulder operation, Rashford has been unable to start the new season.
After England’s successful run to the final of Euro 2020, Rashford made the decision to undergo surgery in July. He was expected to be out of action for three months.
However, it is believed that the striker is making great progress in his rehabilitation and could return to contention in three weeks.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United boss, has pledged not to rush Rashford’s return too soon.
United take on Leicester in the Premier League, and Atalanta In the Champions League. Rashford could be given some playing time in these games.
But Rashford, 23, wants to line-up against Jurgen Klopp’s men when Liverpool visit Old Trafford on October 24 for what will be one of the most explosive games of the season.
Rashford understands that he has to compete for his place in Solskjaer’s starting team now that Cristiano Ronaldo is back at United.
However, he is determined to face Liverpool and has identified this game as the game in which to make his full recovery.
