Manchester United star Marcos Rojo has pulled out of his duties with the Argentina national team as he aims to be fit for his team’s clash with Everton, according to reports from the Daily Star.
The 25-year-old has been sidelined for the previous four matches with a hamstring injury, but is now looking to make a return ahead of their trip to Goodison Park.
He was selected by national team manager Gerardo Martino for the upcoming international matches against Ecuador and Paraguay, but has decided not to take part.
The Argentina FA confirmed via a statement that Rojo is still recovering from an injury and has been told to sit out of the two fixtures by club boss Louis van Gaal.
It was earlier believed that the versatile defender was set for an exit after falling out with his manager, but has recently come out to play down the rumours.
He has so far only featured in one Premier League match this term and is expected to be deployed at left-back following the long-term injury to Luke Shaw.
