Louis van Gaal says Marco Rojo will be in squad to face FC Midtjylland

by Sam Peoples

Marcos Rojo will be part of Manchester United’s squad to face FC Midtjylland on Thursday but Louis van Gaal said he will play a maximum of 20 minutes.

The Argentinian defender had surgery on a dislocated shoulder back at the start of December and has been out of action since.

During that time, Man United have suffered a series of injuries which has left us desperately short in the full-back positions and centre-back at times, but he’s now closing in on a return to full fitness.

Antonio Valencia is further away from a return to action and is currently on an individual recovery program but he was back training with his team-mates which is always a good sign.

As for other injuries, van Gaal brushed over them and indicated he will make a decision on them later on or tomorrow so hopefully we will have even more players available for selection than first anticipated.
