Marcos Rojo gives injury update, should be back for Liverpool game

Marcos Rojo playing for Argentina

Marcos Rojo has been discussing his dislocated shoulder to press in his homeland.

Manchester United have shown signs of improvements in recent games, but one issue has been plaguing them all campaign. Injury.

A long list of United players have missed action this term through injury problems. The likes of Robin van Persie, Michael Carrick, Radamel Falcao, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Rafael, Jonny Evans and Luke Shaw have all had injuries this term.

More recently and David De Gea dislocated his finger on international duty with Spain while Manchester United are waiting on the severity of a knee injury suffered by Daley Blind whilst with the Netherlands.

Another player currently on the sidelines is Marcos Rojo.

He suffered a horrific looking dislocated shoulder after his hand got stuck in the turf during a slide tackle in the Manchester derby.

Because of that injury he is out of action for the international break, including a friendly against Portugal at Old Trafford for Argentina.

He has in fact now been discussing his shoulder problems to Argentine source Deportes Telam. And he is pleased with the prognosis he received after the problem. He also revealed when he will be back in action:

"The truth is I am very happy because I ended up not having surgery of the shoulder. But yes, I work hard to strengthen the affected area. For now I will not be able to return to play for another three or four weeks."

That means Rojo should be back in time for Manchester United's busy Christmas schedule - including games against arch-rivals Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
