Marcus Rashford smiles as he travels with Man Utd to Copenhagen in injury boost as little-known youngster joins squad

MARCUS RASHFORD was all smiles as he travelled to Copenhagen in a major fitness boost for Manchester United.

And the Red Devils star was joined by an inexperienced youngster on the plane to Denmark.

Rashford, 26, has been in the headlines after going out for his birthday party following the Manchester derby drubbing.

He then missed Saturday’s 1-0 win at Fulham, failing a late fitness test following a dead leg in training.

However, United fans received positive news as he made the journey for tomorrow night’s crunch Champions League clash.

Rashford beamed in his stylish navy Paul Smith team suit, white t-shirt and dark cap as he boarded the aircraft at Manchester Airport earlier today.

And boss Erik ten Hag confirmed the No10 is back in contention to face the Danish champions.

The Dutchman said to the media at the Parken Stadium: “100 per cent [ready]. Rashy missed one game with a small knock.”

Rashford has just one goal in 14 United appearances this season, a fine strike in the defeat at Arsenal on September 3.

But Ten Hag backed his star forward to end his barren run soon.


He added: “Marcus is very committed to Manchester United. He’s investing hard work in training to get back into form.”

Victor Lindelof also missed the victory at Craven Cottage – Ten Hag’s 50th as United boss in record time – but made the trip, too.

Teenage attacker Omari Forson was a surprise inclusion in the 23-man travelling squad that flew to the Danish capital.

England youth international Forson, 19, featured for the Red Devils in pre-season this summer but is yet to make his senior debut.

The first-team squad headed out on the same flight as the Under-19s team, who play Copenhagen U19 in the Uefa Youth League tomorrow afternoon.
