Man Utd defender Marcos Rojo admits battle to find peak fitness

Marcos Rojo admits he’s battling to return to full fitness at Manchester United.

After missing three months of action while recovering from a dislocated shoulder, Rojo made his comeback in the 5-1 win against FC Midtjylland last month. 

The defender started Sunday’s win at the Etihad stadium. 

“Every day I’m getting better,” he told MUTV.

“I’m a bit tired right now as I’ve been ill recently and when you play games like these, you leave everything out there on the pitch.

“The manager knows this and asked me to give as much as I could in recent matches. It’s difficult when you’ve been out for the best part of three months to come back and hit the ground running, but I’m getting stronger with every game now.”
