Marcos Rojo explains why move to Everton failed

Marcos Rojo failed to secure a move to Everton in the summer transfer window and has now admitted that he could leave Manchester United in January if he is not handed enough play time.

With the arrival of Harry Maguire at Leicester City, Rojo has further fallen behind the percking order at United even though Chris Smalling was shipped out on loan to Roma. The center-back pairing of Victor Lindelof and Maguire has been prefered by Ole Gunnar Solskajaer with Axel Tuanzebe being the back up.

Rojo spoke to Solskjaer about keeping his place in Lionel Scaloni's Argentina squad, "I talked to Scaloni, he told me that he was happy because in the preseason I had played many games, that I looked good and that’s why he called me, but that I had to play.

"I’m sure that to play in the national team you have to play in your club, you have to always be there, and when you’re here, show why.

"It’s difficult to leave when you are in such a big club. I had the possibility of Everton, but by decisions of the club or the manager it wasn’t possible. Now I have to fight until December and if it doesn’t work out, I will try to leave.

"The qualifiers and the Copa America are coming and I want to be part of that. I don’t want to be out again, I want to exhaust all the possibilities and compete to be here."
