Manchester United released photographs from their training session on Thursday morning, a training session which welcomed the return to some players from injury. Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Jonny Evans too part in the first-team session, one that included a debut in the Manchester United training kit from new signing Marcos Rojo.
Marcos Rojo signed for United from Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday evening for £16million, with Luis Nani going the other way on a loan deal. Louis van Gaal has already spoke about his excitement on United’s new signing.
Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways on Sunday, after losing to Swansea City at Old Trafford last weekend, they face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, a match that could see Marcos Rojo start if Van Gaal feels he is ready to come straight in. Rojo will be unveiled on Friday afternoon alongside the United manager at his weekly press conference.
The return of Robin van Persie is a massive boost for United, after being on the bench against Swansea he is now ready for his first start of the season after missing United’s pre-season campaign due to the Netherlands going so far in the World Cup.
