Defender set for United return

5th February 2019, 11:20 by Nick Harris

Having been sidelined with a mystery injury since December, Marcos Rojo is scheduled to resume first-team training later this week.

The Manchester United defender sustained the problem in the 2-1 Champions League loss at Valencia, but was spotted running again at Carrington over the weekend.

Caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed the Argentina international is working well with the club's conditioning staff, although a firm comeback date isn't set.

However, it's understood the tough-tackling 28-year-old has the green light to again start working with the ball and Solskjaer wants to boost his confidence further by letting him work alongside the senior squad.

Rojo, to the surprise of many United followers, signed a new deal last year to remain at Old Trafford, despite being consistently troubled by injuries.

The South American has managed just three outings this campaign and will likely be sold this summer if a club comes forward with a suitable offer for the former Sporting Lisbon man.
