Solskajer provides update on Marcos Rojo's situation at the club

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an update on Marcos Rojo's situation at the club. 

The defender is on loan at home club Estudiantes but was expected to return at the end of the current season. 

Solskjaer though has said it is unlikely the Argentine will feature again for United this season since the country is under lockdown owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Marcos has been in lockdown over there [in La Plata], so they've not played either,” explained Ole.

“At the moment, I can't see him coming back here over the summer, obviously because we live in this bubble, and we've got this squad available until next season.

“So he just needs to focus on getting fit and staying fit and being ready for wherever that takes him.“

The 30-year-old joined the Reds in 2014 from Sporting Lisbon, and made nine appearances for the first team in 2019/20, prior to his loan move.

He last featured for Solskjaer's side in the 3-1 home win over Brighton & Hove Albion in November.

He is among a number of Man United players currently out on loan, with Dean Henderson (Sheffield United), Joel Pereira (Hearts), Alexis Sanchez (Inter Milan) and Chris Smalling (Roma) the others out on similar deals.
