£70,000-a-week South American Star DESPERATE To SHINE At Man Utd

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is keen to shine with the red devils. The Argentine came in with high expectation judging from his outstanding performance for Argentina at the 2014 world cup finale held in Brazil. Rojo can play in the central defence or at the left back of the defence.

The 25 years old lost his position in the first team due to the form of United’s 20 years old English defender Luke Shaw. Shaw started the season in blistering form; but his progress was hampered when he suffered a double fracture that ruled him out for the major part of the season after being tackled by PSV Eindhoven’s Hector Moreno.

Rojo missed the first seven games of the season due to his involvement with Argentina at the Copa America where his country went all the way to the final. Rojo got his first taste of action when he came on to replace the injured Shaw at PSV; he has since retained that position with some outstanding performances for the red devils; worthy of mentioning was the pull out that led to Herrera nodding ball home against Everton.

Although the Argentine feels the injury to Shaw gave him the chance to get back in the first team; he admitted it was not the best way to get back his position but he is ready to get his head down and work hard in that role.
