Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is worried about his future at the club – just three months after committing to a new long-term Old Trafford contract.
That’s according to The Sun, who adds that the Argentine’s days could be numbered. That’s largely due the Red Devils potentially moving for a new centre-back, coupled with the fact that Jose Mourinho already has options aplenty at the heart of defence.
Apparently, the 27-year-old is concerned about the amount of game-time he’ll receive during 2018/19, and although his concerns are understandable, during Mourinho’s first season in charge, Rojo was a mainstay in his starting line-up; until injury struck.
If he can get a good pre-season under his belt, I’ve no doubt that the manager will restore that faith in Rojo, particularly if no new centre-back is signed over this transfer period.
The thing that’s in Rojo’s favour is his versatility. He can also play as a left-back which gives him more chances to earn minutes, but you do feel that his best position is playing in the middle. Personally, he, alongside Eric Bailly is my preferred pairing at this moment, and if those two can rekindle their on-field relationship, we could be set for an excellent year.
