Marcus Rashford says he is feeling 10 times better as the United forward steps up his recovery from injury and is looking to get back into action.

Rashford was in good form for Manchester United before suffering an injury setback.

The 22-year-old scored seven goals in eight games before a back injury put all of that to a halt.

Based on the injury timeline, Rashford was set to miss the end of the season but might have been handed a lifeline.

The suspension to the current campaign has given players with injury some extra time to heal.

Rashford has now revealed he is feeling much better and is on course to make a full return to action soon.

“I feel much better. I have a scan in another couple of days and that should solidify it, but I feel much better compared to two or three weeks ago,” Rashford told Sky Sports News.

“I feel 10 times better now. For me, now it’s just about getting ready to build up back up to training and then playing games for the team.

“I’m in a much better place. I’m much happier than I was about a month ago so things are looking positive.”

Rashford also admitted he misses the buzz from playing for Manchester United.

“Everyone is just dealing with the circumstances as well as they can,” the 22-year-old added.

“I’ve just been in my house doing my gym work and recovery, reading books, watching Netflix and just doing what I can do to make the time pass further”.

Rashford has had a good season so far, with 14 league goals in 22 appearances.
