Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will reportedly be undergoing shoulder surgery in late July to deal with an ongoing problem.

The Englishman first suffered with issues on his left shoulder around eight months ago, but played through the problems as Man Utd reached the Europa League final and England finished runners-up at Euro 2020.

In the above video, I analysed what we know about Rashford’s injury, the likely surgical options, why the club and player waited eight-plus months for the procedure, and the overall outcomes with these surgery types for footballers.
