Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford have not suffered any issues since returning to training and are ‘looking good’.
The duo were both sidelined through injury when the Premier League season was halted due to the coronavirus crisis, with Pogba struggling with a foot injury and Rashford suffering from a stress fracture in his back.
Football’s shutdown has given both players ample time to recover from their issues and Solskjaer says they have returned to the first phase of training without any issues.
‘They’re looking good,’ Solskjaer told MUTV when asked about the duo. ‘They’ve joined training now and they’ve done everything the other boys have been doing.
‘No reaction so far, touch wood. When we get started, it looks like we can have a full squad to choose from.’
The current phase of training limits squads to work in small groups of five, but Solskjaer is confident they will be able to progress to contact training with larger groups swiftly.
‘The boys have been fantastic, the weather’s been good and they’ve enjoyed it,’ said the Norwegian of training so far.
‘Hopefully now we’ve proved we can do this safely and we can move to the next step. It’s been really enjoyable being on the training ground again.
‘Everyone’s looking sharp, everyone’s been in with a good mood and we’ve been splitting up in groups so [working in] fours and fives together and they’ve really done well.
‘There have been video calls and of course the last couple of weeks they’ve been stepping it up.’
