Boost For Man Utd as £70,000-a-week Star Is Available for Crucial January Schedule
MARCOS ROJO’S injury is not as serious as first thought.
The Manchester United defender went down in his side’s 4-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.
And there were fears the Argentinian defender could miss a long time through injury.
But now the Daily Record report the Red Devils don’t think Rojo suffered a muscle tear.
They say the defender will be available for the rest of United’s demanding January schedule.
Speaking of Rojo’s injury after the game, Jose Mourinho was noncommittal on his status moving forward.
“I have lots of question marks always and I don’t like to say,” he said.
“People like to say first degree X days out, second degree X days out. Let’s wait to see.”
Rojo, who reportedly earns £70,000-a-week at Old Trafford, has formed an unlikely centre-back partnership for United with Phil Jones.
They pair have become key players in Mourinho’s side in their recent run of good form, winning their last six Premier League games in a row.
