Manchester United's Marcos Rojo comments on injury via Twitter

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has played down his injury as 'nothing'.

Marcos Rojo has played down the injury he suffered for Manchester United in their derby loss to City.

The Argentine was stretchered off with an apparent shoulder injury early in the second half, and it proved to be a pivotal moment with the Red Devils going onto concede soon after to a Sergio Aguero strike.

Rojo looked in real pain as he left the field but commenting on Twitter last night he moved to downplay the injury.

His interpretation of 'nothing' is not entirely clear, with manager Louis van Gaal suggesting after the game there could be some time out ahead.

Van Gaal told his press conference: "His shoulder is out. We don't know how long that will take. I have to wait until Monday. But he shall not play against Crystal Palace, I don't think."

More will become certain in the coming days, but the good news is with the international break coming up, the maximum impact the injury will have is likely just the one game.
