Last updated : 21 July 2008 By Sam
The England international centre-back is expected to return to the starting XI for the second of United's game's in South Africa against The Pirates in Durban on Tuesday having now recovered from a back injury.

"Rio trained yesterday," manager Sir Alex Ferguson told the club's official website.

"He wasn't so stiff, and if he trains well today (Monday) he will certainly start on Tuesday.

"He's missed two games now and he'll want to get back into the action.

"I think it's important that he starts."
