United v Swansea: Jose's team news update

Jose Mourinho has revealed that defenders Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo have both regained full fitness and are available for this weekend’s Premier League clash against Swansea City.

Rojo has not featured for the Reds since the Huddersfield Town league win on 3 February, while Jones’s last involvement came in the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United a week later.
 
Mourinho, who was speaking in his pre-match press conference at the Aon Training Complex, also confirmed that Daley Blind has returned to training with the first team, but is not yet ready for this weekend’s match.
 
However, Sergio Romero, who was hurt on international duty during Argentina’s 6-1 defeat to Spain, will miss the Swansea match as he bids to recover from the injury.

Ashley Young also picked up a problem during the final stages of England’s game against Italy on Tuesday, but the United manager declared there was a chance he could shrug the knock off in time for the weekend.

“Apart of Daley, who is training with us, but obviously not available after a couple of months out, we recovered all the other problems we had,”
said Mourinho.
“That includes Phil Jones, of course Marcos Rojo, who played already with Argentina, so the picture improved a lot for us in that aspect.”


Meanwhile, Carlos Carvalhal’s Swansea have doubts over Angel Rangel, Leroy Fer and Wilfried Bony, but Renato Sanches, the Bayern Munich midfielder on loan at the Liberty Stadium, could be poised for a return to the side.
