Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Marcus Rashford was included in Manchester United’s travelling squad to take on Granada in the Europa League on Thursday.

However, Solskjaer still has doubts whether Rashford will feature against the Spanish side. Rashford picked a knock in the 2-1 victory over Brighton but returned to training on Wednesday morning.

Solskjaer refused to reveal whether he would play against Granada but insisted that if it was going to be a risk, then he won’t take it.

“I can’t disclose my team now, we’re not going to do that,” Solskjaer said in his press briefing.

“Marcus is travelling and we have to make a decision tomorrow if he starts or is on the bench. I don’t think he’ll play 90 minutes.”

When pressed further on Rashford’s availability, Solskjaer said: “I don’t pick players when we know there is a risk.

“There’s always a risk when you step out on to the pitch, but if the physio says it’s too much of a risk I would never pick him.

“Now, Marcus joined in training this morning and let’s see how he reacts. His back has recovered and it’s a tough one. ‘He wants to play and wants to give his all for Man United.

“We’ll listen to what he says like we did on Saturday when he came off and said it was too sore.”
