Marcus Rashford has returned to training at Carrington as the Manchester United striker ramps up his recovery from shoulder surgery earlier this summer.
The 23-year-old has missed United’s first two league games of the season as a result of surgery undertaken to combat his long-standing shoulder injury that has hampered the England star for several years.
Rashford was delighted with the outcome of the operation and two weeks ago took to social media to inform fans that the operation had gone well, and now United have released footage of the attacker in Carrington this week.

The Englishman was greeted on the pitch by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while Rashford appeared to be briefing his boss on the status of his shoulder after surgery.
The Red Devil was then put to the test with some running practice before enjoying some ball work in a positive session for the academy graduate.
Solskjaer revealed last weekend that he is hopeful Rashford will not be too far off the roster, with the United star expected to challenge Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood for a starting spot on the wing.

“He seemed very happy with the operation,” said the Norwegian after United’s draw against Southampton.
“He works at the gym. We see him every day, so he’ll love it every time it gets closer to being able to come back.”
Rashford is expected to be fully fit and available in October, and he is hugely available for United as they look to take on a title challenge this campaign.
The Englishman scored 21 goals in all competitions last season and is hoping for more of the same
The Red Devils finished second behind Manchester City last season and, boosted by the arrival of Sancho for £73m and the purchase of Raphael Varane for £42m, are expected to finally land some silverware under Solskjaer.
United fell short in the Europa League final last season and lost to Unai Emery on penalties from Villarreal in Gdansk, Poland.
