Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford has revealed that the squad is almost fully recovered following a coronavirus outbreak.

The Red Devils were forced to shut down their Carrington training complex and postpone games against Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion last week after 19 players and staff tested positive for coronavirus.

However, Ralf Rangnick’s side resumed training this week, and Rashford asserts that the squad is in good spirits ahead of their December 27 game against Newcastle United.

“We’ve pretty much got the full squad back, which is a positive going into the week,” the England international told the club’s official website.

“Everyone is very positive at the minute. We were all disappointed when the last game got canceled but, at the end of the day, there’s nothing you can really do about it.

“We have to just focus on the next game that will be played and hopefully that game goes ahead. I definitely enjoy this time of year. I think the way you start the season and the way you play, and the results you get around the Christmas period, are probably the two most important points [in the season].

“So, if we have a good Christmas period now, then we can keep that momentum going and that will take you into the big games where the trophies are, come the end of the season.”

Manchester United are currently sixth in the Premier League, five points behind the league leaders.
