Marcos Rojo hopes to return from injury in the New Year.


Rojo expressed his frustration at missing so many United matches recently due to injury and plants to return to first team action in the New Year.

The Argentine hasn’t participated since Louis van Gaal's side beat Southampton 2-1 at the St Mary's Stadium on December 8 and has missed four matches [against Liverpool, Aston Villa, Newcastle and Tottenham Hotspur] since then.

"It’s something you never want to go through," he told United Review as reported by ManUtd.com.

"You always want to be out there playing on the field, helping your team-mates.

"I’ve had the misfortune to get injured recently and I really don’t like it. It’s terrible to miss training and be out of the team. I just hope I can regain my full fitness quickly and it doesn’t happen again, as it’s never good being injured."

Manchester United play Stoke City next at the Britannia Stadium on New Year's Day and head to Yeovil Town in the FA Cup third round. After being side-lined by injuries, Rojo hopes to return to action at the start of 2015.

"Certainly there are a lot of games coming quickly, one after another," Rojo added. "That’s what I want, to get fit as quickly as possible so I can lend a hand to the team.

"The manager is going to want as many players as possible for this busy period. It’s an important part of the season with so many games in quick succession."
