Marcos Rojo: I was afraid to talk to Jose Mourinho about future

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Marcos Rojo has admitted to being afraid to talk to Jose Mourinho about his future at the club.

The Argentine enjoyed a fine first season under the Portuguese manager but succumbed to an injury towards the end of it.

Rojo’s injury kept him out from the end of the last campaign to about half way through the one that just ended.

Though he was fit, the defender wasn’t often used despite putting in decent shifts with Mourinho preferring to pick players who have consistently played such as Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.

In fact the former Real Madrid manager’s decision to start the pair in the FA Cup final was heavily criticised.

According to Caught Offside, Marcos said to the Sun: “But at the end of the season, with fear, I went to talk to him [Mourinho] and I tried to ask him what was going on.

“He told me there were several in situations similar to mine. And he was going to put the one in who was better.”

Rojo is unfortunate to be in a position that’s over stocked at Old Trafford which is of course the centre-back position.

Jose has the tough decision this summer to decide who will move on or not with a few youngsters also sniffing around for first team action.

Marcos, Smalling, Jones, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly are the Red Devils’ senior options but there’s also Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah who are set to return from respective loan spells.
