Manchester United have been heavily boosted by the return of versatile Argentina star Marcos Rojo, who was sidelined with injury, this is according to report.
Rojo missed the start of the season following an anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up last season but he returned two months ago and suffered another relapse. The Argentina defender has missed a couple of recent games for Man United but ESPN reports that he has returned to full training ahead of the Red Devils game against Liverpool in the Premier League.
Eric Bailly has returned to squad but he is yet to lace his boots the Red Devils as Mourinho wants to ease him in. Nonetheless, the return of Rojo means the Special One will have very good options for the centre-back positions.
Phil Jones is also battling with injury while Daley Blind last game for United was in January as a result of injury.
Rojo has emerged as one of the favourites for Mourinho whenever he’s fit as he can comfortably play as a centre-back and a left full back.
Speaking ahead of his return, Rojo laid bare his intention to ease the inherent injury crisis of Mourinho’s squad.
“I’m feeling 100 per cent and I’m happy with my previous performances,” Rojo said.
“They’ve been at a high level and I’m happy with my physical level, too. It’s about getting minutes under my belt and continuing to play.
“It was great coming back after a difficult injury and there was a lot of hard work for me to do.”
Man United are scheduled to play Liverpool on the 10th of March and Rojo is in contention for the game.
