Manchester United Star Doubtful For Liverpool Clash
Category : News
Marcus Rojo suffered a muscular problem in United’s 4-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup on Tuesday, and might not be able to play against Liverpool in the weekend.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted defender Marcos Rojo is doubtful to face Liverpool for the Premier League clash on 15 January.
The Argentine was withdrawn early in the Red Devil’s FA Cup match against Reading, which United won 4-0 at home.
Following the FA Cup win, Mourinho confirmed the versatile defender suffered a muscle injury that saw him miss the English League Cup semi-final clash against Hull City. The first leg at Old Trafford saw the hosts beat the Tigers 2-0, courtesy to second half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini.
Mourinho is already without the services of Eric Bailly as the Red Devils’ last summer signing is on international duty with Ivory Coast at the 2017 African Cup of Nations. Rojo’s failure to be fit for Liverpool clash could see him deploy Jones and Smalling in the starting lineup against the Reds.
