Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, stated that Alejandro Garnacho’s situation is “more severe” but he anticipates Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw making a quick recovery.
Rashford suffered a muscular injury in the 2-0 victory over Everton on Saturday, and United announced on Wednesday that he would miss “a few games.”
Due to the striker’s late withdrawal due to apparent groin pain, United will have to manage without their top scorer for the time being, beginning with Thursday’s home leg of the Europa League quarterfinal against Sevilla.
Shaw will also be absent when Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team comes to town because he was not there for the weekend victory over Everton.
Shaw’s injury has not yet been identified by United, but Ten Hag seems to think that, unlike Garnacho, he won’t be out for very long.
The teenage winger suffered an injury a month ago against Southampton, and Ten Hag doesn’t appear to be anticipating a quick recovery.
Ten Hag responded when asked if Shaw or Garnacho will be available to play Sevilla: “No, both [are] not available.
“Definitely the injury of Garnacho is more severe, is more strong, but Luke Shaw I expect him back at short notice, yes.”
Ten Hag was unable to provide any additional information about Rashford beyond the prior statement from United indicating that he would miss “a few games.”
“A few games, so that’s the statement” he said. “I can’t give more details on it because we don’t know. We’ll have to see it how it develops.
“It’s a setback and he’s disappointed, but he’s not totally broke because he will return quickly. He’s started his rehab and that helps to get back soon.”
