‘Earlier than expected’, ‘Cannot wait’ – Man United fans adore injury update on Twitter

Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are excited at the prospect of Marcos Rojo making a comeback from injury ahead of their Champions League encounter with Benfica on Wednesday.

The Argentinian defender ruptured his knee ligaments against Anderlecht back in April and has been sidelined ever since, but the Express has reported that he could return to the matchday squad for this week’s contest in Lisbon. Luke Shaw was also pictured boarding the flight to Portugal and both players will be eager to reacquaint themselves with the first-team setup as they seek to break into the starting eleven.

The task of finding a place in Jose Mourinho’s formidable lineup will prove difficult with the Red Devils only conceding two goals- both in a 2-2 draw at Stoke- in eight Premier League matches. All the defenders called upon have performed well from Phil Jones partnership with Eric Bailly at the heart of the defence to Ashley Young’s recent impressive displays at left-back.

However, prior to his injury Rojo had been an integral part of United’s team having successfully overcome some initial teething problems in the English game. He offers intelligence, composure and good technique whether he’s operating as a centre-half or as a full-back. Expected to be back in around 2 weeks, the Argentina international is a hugely popular figure.

With that in mind, here’s how the Old Trafford reacted to his imminent return on Twitter…
