Marcos Rojo sets date for return after first outing with reserves

Rojo comes through 45-minute return for Man Utd

Rojo comes through 45-minute return for Man Utd

Marcos Rojo returned from a long-term injury on Wednesday night as he played for Manchester United's under-23s.

United, who are second in the Premier League, are unbeaten in the Champions League this season.

The Argentina worldwide last featured in a competitive United game on April 20, when the Red Devils beat Anderlecht 2-1 after extra time to book their place in the Europa League semi-finals - coincidentally the same match in which Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a similar setback.

As quoted by the Manchester Evening News, he said, "Tomorrow, I am going to play a match with the reserves in a friendly match", "I feel good".

United take on Basel next week before wrapping up their group stage against CSKA Moscow on 5 December, where Rojo could be given a run-out as United have already qualified for the last-16.

The hectic Christmas schedule will be that opportunity for us to pile up the points as we aim to narrow the gap to Manchester City, as Rojo is expected to be joined in first team by the likes of Ibrahimovic, Carrick and Pogba who are all carrying or suffering one form of injury or the other.

So far this campaign, though, it's been Phil Jones and Eric Bailly that has kept opposition attacks at bay impressively.

Mourinho is blessed with a number of defensive options and has refused to rush Rojo back into action.

The Red Devils head into the game looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-0 loss to Chelsea before the global break.

Rojo will not be rushed into a return, given the severity of his injury, and the player himself is instead targeting a return in three weeks' time when the Champions League returns.
