Rojo An Ideal Wing Back

Yesterday, the Red Devils announced the signing of Argentinian left back, Marcos Rojo. Rojo, who is just 24-years-old, is still young for a defender and I believe he has the potential to shine at our club.

Rojo played six matches at this summer’s World Cup, where he was a key part of the Argentina side that finished runners-up. In those six games, he averaged 3.3 tackles and 2.5 interceptions per game, as well as making an average of 3.7 clearances.

Defensively, he is a solid player. Even more impressively, in attack he made 1.5 key passes per game, made 0.5 dribbles and got fouled an average of 1.2 times a game. He also passed the ball especially well, he had a pass completion rate of 81%.

“'It feels like a dream, to be a Manchester United player,” Rojo told Argentinian radio station ARG Radio Continental.

It certainly will feel like a dream for the young defender, when he steps onto the turf at Old Trafford for the first time. And, if his World Cup performances are anything to go by, watching him play will feel like one too.
