Ten facts about Man United new boy Marcos Rojo.
Manchester United this week took a step closer to closing the gaping defensive hole in their back line as Louis Van Gaal looks to rebuild the ailing side he’s inherited from David Moyes. A new centre-back has been key to his plans, and luckily he has brought a very good one in for a very reasonable price.
Fans can be forgiven for not knowing too much about him, so below are ten facts that you may not have known about the Manchester United new boy.
1. His full name is Faustino Marcos Alberto Rojo and he was born on March 20, 1990 (on the same day singer Gloria Estefan broke her collarbone in a bus accident).
2. He is equally capable as a left-back as he is as a centre-back, and has played in both positions numerous times for club and country.
