Manchester United are confident Marcos Rojo will be back in action soon

Manchester United are confident that Marcos Rojo did not pick up a muscle tear (as initially feared) during Manchester United’s 4-0 FA Cup win over Reading last weekend.

The Argentine limped off after just 19 minutes during the contest with Jaap Stam’s side, leading to Jose Mourinho expressing concerns over a potentially serious muscular injury.

However, it turns out that Rojo was forced off due to overcompensating for a knock sustained in training as opposed to any muscular problem.

And according to the Daily Record‘s Duncan Castles, the 26-year-old will be available for the remainder of Man United’s January schedule.

With Eric Bailly absent due to his exertions at the African Cup of Nations, losing Rojo during a potentially decisive January period would have been a massive blow for Mourinho.

The defender’s growingly potent partnership with Phil Jones has underpinned United’s solidity during their 14 game unbeaten run (indeed, Mourinho’s men haven’t lost a game since the pair first started together back in early November), and supporters will be desperate to see the pair – competently backed up by Chris Smalling and Daley Blind – continue to thrive, especially with the potentially season-defining game with Jurgen Klopp’s second-placed Liverpool ominously lurking round the corner.
