    Jose provides an update on injured trio

    Jose Mourinho has provided an update on the progress of injured trio Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo, who have all been part of the Tour 2017 squad.

    The three players travelled out to the United States with the full group to continue their rehabilitation from the setbacks they each suffered last season.

    Shaw damaged ligaments in his foot in the match against Swansea at the start of May, while Young was forced off the pitch in United’s Europa League semi-final first-leg match away to Celta Vigo, also in May.

    In the previous round of the competition at home to Anderlecht, Rojo was stretchered off with knee ligament damage, incidentally the same injury sustained in the same game by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

    Despite not being able to play on tour, Mourinho wanted the three players to be part of the travelling group and he is pleased with how their recoveries are coming along. “It’s good to have them here, it’s been good for them to be with us and recover with the group,” he told reporters in San Jose on Saturday.

    “They have no chance for the beginning of the Premier League season. Luke Shaw is the first one to recover, Marcos will be last and Ash will be in between. Luke is September, Young is October and Rojo is December, or maybe January.

    “The group is really strong and it’s good to be together. It’s important for them to be with us and not be in Manchester working at home.”
