Marcos Rojo ready to cheer on team-mates at Old Trafford

Marcos Rojo might not be available for selection tomorrow for Manchester United’s game against West Bromwich Albion but the Argentinian defender will be cheering on from the Old Trafford stands.

The defender hasn’t featured for Man United since the 4-2 win over Man City in the derby as he is currently sidelined with an injury, and not for the first time this season.

There was a period earlier this season where Rojo was United’s most in-form centre-back but injuries have stopped him from holding that sort of form in the long-term.

While much has been made about the injury records of Michael Carrick and Luke Shaw this season, not too much has been said about Rojo despite the fact he has spent so long on the sidelines.

He has started just 18 Premier League games for Man United this season which is only two more than Carrick (16) and four more than Shaw (14), worrying figures for Rojo that certainly highlight how injury prone he has been this year.

With Louis van Gaal set to bring in new defensive signings this summer, Rojo will want to have a strong pre-season under his belt and make sure he stays fit next year. Otherwise, he could find himself out of the team more often than not.
