Man United star admits intentions to secure left-back role

Manchester United star Marcos Rojo has revealed that he will be doing all he can to help his team out at left-back following the injury to Luke Shaw, Daily Star reports.

The 25-year-old saw his place in the squad under huge jeopardy after a number of conflicts with manager Louis van Gaal earlier in the campaign.

His failure to update his passport caused him to miss the pre-season tour of the United States, angering the Dutchman, while his failure to inform the club of an injury added even more problems for him.

However, Rojo was given another chance to feature after Shaw broke his leg in the Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven, ruling him out for a majority of the season.

The Argentina international looks to have now impressed his manager following his displays against rivals Manchester City last month as he now targets a permanent role despite being given the chance due to a serious injury to his teammate.

“I’m going to put in all the work necessary so I can be on form to help out the team in that position,” he said.

“What happened to Luke is a real shame and a player never likes to get into the team as a result of an injury to a team-mate, but that has been the case with me and now I have to get my head down and work hard in that role.”
