Marcos Rojo should be available for selection in the coming weeks.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been handed a timely boost, with Goal reporting that Argentine central defender Marcos Rojo should be available for a return to first team action at Old Trafford during early January.
Rojo, who was signed from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon in the summer on the back of a fine World Cup with losing finalists Argentina, has been plagued by injuries during his first few months in English football, picking up a shoulder injury during United’s 5-3 defeat at Leicester City in September.
He did make a brief return to action before being sidelined again, and Rojo has indicated that he is keen that his debut season in the Premier League is not disrupted any further:
“The manager is going to want as many players as possible for this busy period. It’s an important part of the season with so many games in quick succession.
“I’ve had the misfortune to get injured recently and I really don’t like it. It’s terrible to miss training and be out of the team.
“I just hope I can regain my full fitness quickly and it doesn’t happen again, as it’s never good being injured.”
