Marcos Rojo will be back for Man United in two weeks - Mourinho
LISBON -- Marcos Rojo should be fit to make his Manchester United return in two weeks, manager Jose Mourinho has said.
Rojo has not played since suffering a knee ligament tear during the Europa League quarterfinal against Anderlecht in April.
He was part of the squad for the club's summer tour of the United States, but only to continue his rehabilitation.
And although Rojo travelled to Lisbon on Monday ahead of United's Champions League tie against Benfica, he will not feature against the Portuguese side.
Mourinho told MUTV: "Rojo is not coming to play but he is coming with the team to train with the group.
"I would say probably in two weeks Marcos is ready to play."
So long as Rojo does not suffer any setbacks, he could be ready for United's trip to Stamford Bridge on Nov. 5.
It is likely that the 27-year-old will feature for the under-23s before making his return to the first team.
Ricky Sbragia's side play Liverpool at Leigh on Monday night before a trip to Sunderland on Sunday.
