share on:

Marcos Rojo’s hopes of returning to the Manchester United first team having suffered a huge blow when he limped out of his team’s Under-23 clash with Reading Under-23s on Friday night.

Marcos Rojo has not played since featuring for Argentina at the 2018 World Cup, he missed Manchester United’s pre-season preparations with a ‘physical problem’.

United boss Jose Mourinho confirmed during Friday’s press conference that he wanted Rojo to play the full 90 minutes for Manchester United’s Under-23s ahead of a potential first-team return.

Rojo, however, had to be replaced before the hour mark in the Premier League 2 fixture – which finished 1-1 – and looked uncomfortable as he headed straight down the tunnel with a United doctor.

Summer signing Diogo Dalot also featured on Friday night as the defender steps up his return from a knee problem.

The 19-year-old, a summer signing from Porto, could now be in line to travel with the senior team to Switzerland on Tuesday ahead of the Champions League tie with Young Boys on Wednesday.
