Marcos Rojo out for six weeks

Manchester United defender, Marcos Rojo, is set to miss at least six weeks after suffering a dislocated shoulder during the Manchester Derby yesterday.

The Argentine centre-back fell awkwardly after making a tackle and was stretchered off the pitch during the second-half, and it has now been confirmed that he is likely to miss at least six weeks.

The news comes as a real blow to Louis Van Gaal who is now without; Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling, with the latter being suspended after seeing red against City.

After the 1-0 defeat, Van Gaal didn’t give a timescale on Rojo, but it’s believed that he could miss six weeks.

In his post-match press conference, Van Gaal said: “The shoulder is out, so you never know how long that takes. I have to wait until tomorrow but he shall not play against Crystal Palace.”

The latest injury blow could leave United with a centre-back pairing of Michael Carrick and Paddy McNair.
