Marcos Rojo: Why it’s great to have this man back for Man United

Marcos Rojo expresses his delight at seeing Phil Jones back in action for Manchester United

Marcos Rojo has expressed his delight at seeing Phil Jones back in action for Manchester United.

Jones has recently made his return to the Red Devils first team under Jose Mourinho following a lay-off due to injury.

Manchester United are looking to climb the Premier League table in the coming weeks after making something of a stuttering start to life under new boss Mourinho.

And Manchester United defender Rojo feels that having Jones back in action for the Red Devils is a huge plus-point for Mourinho’s men.

Speaking in an interview with United’s website, Rojo said: “I’m really happy for Phil after the injury he had.

“He was out for quite a while. To have him back and playing well makes me and the rest of the team very happy.”

Manchester United moved quickly to bring in Mourinho as the club’s new manager back in May following the sacking of Louis van Gaal.

The Red Devils finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup last season under Van Gaal, before he was dismissed after two seasons in charge at Old Trafford.
