Cape Town - Manchester
United defender Marcos Rojo is hoping to be ready for the Red Devils'
Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow on December 5.
The Argentine has not played for Jose Mourinho's side since injuring a
knee ligament in April, but is back in training and eager to play his
part again next month.
"[On Wednesday] I am going to play with the reserves in a friendly match," Rojo told TyC Sports. "I feel good. Up until now, I have not had any problems but training is not the same as a match.
"In three weeks we have a Champions League game and if all goes well tomorrow, I could play in that."
The 27-year-old is extra motivated to return to the United starting
lineup in order to impress Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli ahead of the
2018 Fifa World Cup.
"I have to win my place back in the team so that Jorge Sampaoli considers me for the World Cup," he added.
"I have been out a while but I am determined to get back into the national team. I want to show Sampaoli how good I am."
