Jose Mourinho provided an unexpected injury update ahead of the Champions League tie against Benfica.
Marcos Rojo was part of the travelling squad to Portugal, but while the United boss revealed in an exclusive interview with MUTV, that the defender would not be included in the match day squad "he is coming with the team to train," Mourinho did go onto say that in "probably two weeks, Marcos is ready to play," which is a huge bonus given that his initial timeline was early 2018. The Argentina international was considered surplus to requirements at one stage, however he performances at centre-back earned him a regular starting spot in 2016/17 before he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in the Europa League back in April. The return of Rojo next month will help to bolster the ranks as the team head into a busy period with 13 games scheduled during the six weeks leading up-to Christmas / New Year. Oct 17 - 12:19 PM
