Pic: Man Utd fans delighted to see this defender part of the travelling squad to Lisbon

Argentine is set to make his long awaited return to action

Marcos Rojo was finally showing signs of the accomplished defender that graced Argentina’s left-back spot during their run to the final of FIFA World Cup 2014, when a season ending injury curtailed his progress mid-April this year.

Fast forward six months and the Argentine’s recovery is already ahead of schedule, prompting Jose Mourinho to include the versatile left sided operator in Manchester United’s squad for their Champions League tie against Benfica.

The Red Devils have been short on cover for the left-back spot and his return would definitely strengthen an area of concern for the supporters, having had only Daley Blind as a fit for that position. Moreover his ability to play in central defence would come in handy as the season progresses.

Manchester United fans were certainly glad to see the Argentine again in the mix of things. Check out a picture of Marcos Rojo travelling with the squad for Lisbon below –
