Manchester United have defended brilliantly at the start of this season so far, conceding just one goal and even that was put into the back of the net by a stray foot of Michael Carrick. Today Louis van Gaal met the media ahead of the Brugge game, and confirmed the news we’ve all been waiting for.
Marcos Rojo has been absent so far this campaign, but during his press conference this afternoon, the manager confirmed that the Argentine international will play an hour for Manchester United’s reserves, against Ajax.
This is great news. Rojo was superb for the club last season and his passion was on display for all to see. He needs game time to gain match fitness before he can feature for the first team, and the reserves is a good place for him to start.
The 25-year old offers United another option at both centre-back and left-back which will be appealing to Louis van Gaal, and he also can offer some height that Daley Blind cannot – which may come into the managers thoughts.
