Manchester United are back. The Red Devils have been playing excellently under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and there is once again a belief that this team can win football matches.
Having gone five-for-five so far, the Baby Faced Assassin is preparing his team for their toughest test yet; an away game against Tottenham Hotspur.
Before the game, Solskjaer met the media to discuss all things United. Amongst the topic of conversation was injuries, with the manager confirming that Marcos Rojo is struggling with injury – and has gone back to Argentina.
“He’s [Rojo] gone back to Argentina for a while with his injury,” Solskjaer told reporters, including ManUtd.com.
“How long is a piece of rope?” the manager responded, when asked how long Rojo will be out for.
“For him, it’s mentally important for him to get away and come back fresh again.”
Judging by what the manager says, the problem seems rather serious, and who knows how long Rojo will be missing for?
What’s concerning is that this is becoming more and more of a regular thing following that horrific injury he suffered in the Europa League a few years ago now, that kept him sidelined for almost a year.
While you have to admire Rojo’s fight, desire and drive when he’s on the field, he’s no use whatsoever to United if he’s always injured. I know it’s tough because it’s not his doing, but football is a cuthtroat business.
It’s a shame because I’d argue that he’s probably one of our best defenders when he’s at 100%, but I wouldn’t be wholly surprised to see United let him go when the summer transfer window opens.
