Renowned football expert Tim Vickery has given his verdict on Manchester United new boy Marcos Rojo, and it does not make for good reading.
"Louis van Gaal is clearly thinking in terms of having a back three in his armoury and he might think Marcos Rojo ticks the boxes as someone who can play at left-back, can play centre-back, and therefore would be comfortable left-side of a back three. But two months ago, certainly before the World Cup, no one really imagined Rojo as a player of Manchester United's calibre.
"He did well in the World Cup and his market value has obviously risen as a result, but I'm having to get it round my head a little bit the idea he might be wearing the United shirt because, certainly until recently, I didn't really see him as that calibre of player."
Vickery's judgement on Rojo may have been influenced by the fact he has been yellow carded 20 times and red carded 4 times in his last two season's with Sporting Lisbon.
