Good news: Manchester United handed massive injury boost ahead of Newcastle game

Despite the number of players sidelined for Manchester United due to injuries, Jose Mourinho has claimed that rather than complain about the absence of a particular player, he will make do with who is available.

Nonetheless, Manchester United have been boosted by the imminent return of Argentina international and versatile defender Marcos Rojo, this is according to report.

Rojo has been out of action since April after sustaining a cruciate ligament injury in the Red Devils Europa league game against Anderlecht. Until the injury, he was one of the key defenders for Jose Mourinho last term as he partnered Eric Bailly at the heart of defence.

According to Manchester Evening News, he will play for United’s B team on Wednesday night in a bid to step up his recovery. They are scheduled to play Athletic Club at Leigh Sports Village in the Premier league cup and the versatile left back confirmed his availability.

The report further stated that Rojo is in line for  United’s Champions league game against CSKA Moscow next month.

Speaking to the Mail about his return, Rojo Said: “Tomorrow I am going to play a match with the reserves in a friendly match.

“I feel good. Up until now I have not had any problems but training is not the same as a match so I will play 45 minutes tomorrow for the reserves.

“In three weeks we have a Champions League game that and if all goes well tomorrow I could play in that.”

Rojo is not the only returnee. Paul Pogba and Michael Carrick have returned to full training and they will give Jose Mourinho quality options in midfield.

Jose Mourinho has played with a makeshift left back since Ashley Young returned. When fully fit, Rojo could make the position his own.
