Manchester United star Marcos Rojo will reportedly be ready for the club’s clash with Burnley this weekend.
The Argentine has been out due to injury but is apparently fit enough to be under consideration for a fixture Jose Mourinho will be desperate to win.
The Portuguese manager actually relied on Rojo during his first season at the club but has since used him sparingly.
The centre-back definitely struggled to return from the horrific injury he suffered in the Europa League final but he’s also hardly been considered for selection.
With Mourinho’s other defenders flailing, he may be tempted to once again rely on Marcos and secure a desperately needed win.

Normally fans wouldn’t consider a player who just returned to full training to be up for selection but Jose hasn’t been shy of throwing his players in the deep-end before.
Paul Pogba, Phil Jones and Romelu Lukaku among many other stars were all selected despite not having a pre-season and hardly being fit.
It could be argued those decisions have backfired since United have lost two of their three opening matches.
Nonetheless, only time will tell whether Rojo will play a part for the club this season or whether he’s their most dispensable option.
