Ten Hag slams scheduling after Rashford injury

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag faces an anxious wait to learn the extent of Marcus Rashford's injury after the forward was forced off in Saturday's victory over Everton.

Rashford, United's top scorer this season with 28 goals, hobbled from the field clutching his groin with nine minutes to go at Old Trafford, raising concerns over his availability for Thursday's Europa League quarter-final against Sevilla.

Asked how severe Rashford's injury was, Ten Hag told reporters: "I can't say in this moment, I'm not a doctor. We have to wait how bad or how good it is. Obviously he went off and we have to wait for the diagnosis and we will see."

Rashford's injury, coupled with the possibility of United playing 65 games this season if they reach the finals of the FA Cup and Europa League, prompted fresh calls from Ten Hag for more considerate scheduling.

United lost at Newcastle in last Sunday's late kick-off and played Brentford on Wednesday before kicking off this weekend's round of fixtures with the lunchtime game against Everton.
