Louis van Gaal has claimed that Marcos Rojo could be back in less than six weeks after confirming surgery isn’t required to fix his dislocated shoulder.
Marcos dislocated his shoulder but did it in a positive way. We don’t need to operate on him. It’s a relief but maybe, with this injury, it is very difficult to prevent it from happening again. That is the problem. He saw a specialist yesterday evening who said the conservative way to heal it is best. For him, it was positive. Always with these injuries, I cannot change that. The human body has been made by God – not by me. Conservatively, it can be less than six weeks. If we have to operate, 12 weeks.
