​Rojo close to Man Utd return confirms Mourinho

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that Marcos Rojo travelled with the squad to Lisbon ahead of their clash with Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday at the Estadio da Luz.

Luke Shaw who played for the reserves during the weekend also made the trip. Eric Bailly is unavailable due to an injury which he sustained while on international duty with the Ivory Coast.

Although Rojo will not play against Benfica, Mourinho did confirm that he will return to action soon.

"Rojo is not coming to play but he is coming with the team to train today with the group. Tomorrow, individually, but he's coming [back].

"I would say, probably in two weeks, Marcos is ready to play. There is no Bailly - he was injured in the national team."
