Marcos Rojo pictured back in United training

Manchester United defender, Marcos Rojo has been pictured in training with his team mates, after over four months out due to ligaments damage.

The Argentine, who was one of United’s better performers last season, has been out since rupturing his ligaments in April against Anderlecht in the Europa League second leg quarter-final at Old Trafford.

So, he was ruled out for the season, and was on crutches when the Red Devils defeated Ajax 2-0 to lift the Europa League title.

While his return to first team training will undoubtedly please manager,José Mourinho, the 27-year-old is still weeks from attaining match fitness.

In a related development, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young made a successful return from injury when when they played for the United Reserves against Swansea.

Both players have been injured for months, and came through unscathed in the game.

Shaw has been out since suffering a ligament damage in April, also against Swansea in the PL, while Young picked up his against Celta Vigo in the semi-final of the Europa League.

Shaw and Young were also pictured with their team mates in training today, alongside fellow long term absentee, Marcos Rojo.
