Marcos Rojo has admitted he has the backing of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Argentine international’s game time has been severely hit by persistent injury problems but he is now back in the reckoning. The defender could be given his second start when the Red Devils host West Ham United on Saturday.
Both Ashley Young and Luke Shaw are suspended and Solskjaer is bound to introduce a new fullback pairing against the London giants. Rojo could be in the starting lineup alongside Diogo Dalot who has been pretty impressive in the Premier League run-in so far this season.
United are still unbeaten at home since the Norwegian took charge and would be eager to maintain the solidity at the Old Trafford.
Rojo said, “It’s been very good.
“Since he [Ole] arrived, he’s had an incredible relationship with me.
”When he got here, he told me I was part of his plans and that he wanted me to get myself fully fit.
“He helped me a lot because I was coming off a bad run of injuries and he told me to not worry and just concentrate calmly on making progress in my rehab and recovery.
“That was important to me and then as I’ve said, he allowed me to go back to Argentina to be with my family a while, as we didn’t have any fixtures.
”I think his most positive feature is the way he is close to the players and he understands them very well too because he had a long career as a player himself and he played a long time here at this club too.
“I think that you can see that in his ideas on how to play the game and getting back to what United was before. He’s very positive, always helping and always giving advice.”
