Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed an injury setback for Argentina star Marcos Rojo, per report.
United have been reveling in the ambiance good form since Solskjaer assumed the reign of the club.
The Red Devils have won five of their last five but they will face a stern test when they take on Tottenham Hotspurs on Saturday.
United squad have been in Dubai in a bid to recover from the herculean schedule of the festive period.
Solskjaer was quizzed ahead of United’s game with Tottenham and he revealed Rojo have had to return to Argentina because of the severity of the injury.
“He’s [Rojo] gone back to Argentina for a while with his injury,” Solskjaer told reporters, including ManUtd.com.
“How long is a piece of rope?” the manager responded, when asked how long Rojo will be out for.
“For him, it’s mentally important for him to get away and come back fresh again.”
Judging from the submission of Solskjaer, the injury of Rojo is more serious than we all thought.
For Rojo, he has spent more time recovering than playing for Man United since he made the switch to the club.
Its painful his situation because you’d argue that he is one of our best defenders. At this rate, he is unlikely going to be handed another deal at the expiration of his contract.
