After an injury-plagued season, Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has assured him of his future at the club.
Rojo had limited play time in the just concluded season due to injuries and loss of form, spending the March international break training with former club Estudiantes in Argentina. The 29-year-old made three appearances during the final eight league games of United's Premier League season but failed to complete 90 minutes.
In an interview with El Dia, Rojo revealed Solskjaer assured him of his future at the club, "For now I would like to stay at United. I spoke to the manager before the end of the season and we spoke about his plans for me. He said that I was in his plans, that I'm an important player and that he wanted me to return to full fitness to be able to count on me in the first team. It's now time to rest and spend time with my family before returning to England."
Rojo also spoke of a chance presented to him to join Boca Juniors, "[Boca Juniors manager] Nico Burdisso called me, who was a teammate of mine from the national team. He called me when he took over at Boca. I wasn't playing at that point. I thanked him but told him that my intention was to stay at United. Boca is a great team, but for now I want to keep playing in Europe."
