    It is crazy how wretched he is defensively in the position. I am not a fan of him at CB, far too reckless and out of control but the lack of any defensive instinct when moved wide is eye popping. I would expect most CB's to at least be aware defensively when switched across, even if they would offer nothing going forward.

    He’s shite at left back always has been. Don’t know why we played him there.

    He doesnt play there for Argentina either.. Ajax LB Tagliafico is their LB.

    If you compare his CB performances to his LB performances his is a good cb but in reality he is a average cb who just isnt good for Manchester United but so are our other centre backs.

    Shocking performance. Mourinho should be suitably embarrassed playing him left-back.

    He should be brought on in emergency situations only(and maybe not even then).

    He's been terrible since his return from injury. The only time he looked decent was before his injury.

    Since then, diabolical. But Jose compounds the issue by playing him LB. Just why? It's ridiculous management.

    I agree but we are talking about the CB that was beat with a dribble the most in the entire league last season. So its not just out wide that he gets exposed by people running at him, its everywhere. He doesnt know how to stay on his feet and make a tackle, he just knows how to dive in and hope for the best

    The only reason I thought he played was to just get more minutes under his belt. The whole team selection felt like that and it's like we weren't anticipating any mistakes from Juve.

    He ball watches as well, meaning he is an easy mark for a one/two played around him. Also exposes his mediocre pace, lack of recovery speed when he is invariably out of position. That dribble stat, is that in a per game basis or overall totals? because if it is the second and he only played 9 league games:lol:

    He is just a generic copy of David Luiz, and lets be honest thats probably the worst player you want to be a bad copy of as a defender. Going to ignore the defensive aspect as I assume everyone agrees he lacks the basics, and still I swear people are so blinded sometimes by this guy as he makes many bad decisions with the ball every game he plays, which often just breaks our play up. Ponders on the ball. People still congratulate him on the beautiful pass to build up fancy play:lol: Sure. Him and Ashley young at LB is like hoofball 3000, anyone can get lucky with a pass when they try as much as they do. Sick of him and to be honest he is getting worse. Can't possibly have been more than 10 good games since 2014.

    Worst player tonight by far he even out shone Fred, literally looked like a pissed up Sunday League player turning up and facing some little whippet after a night out

    So eventually he actually ended up joint most beaten CB of actual CBs with Mustafi

    Monreal is really a left back but he did play CB at times so you might say joint 2nd most of any player who played at CB per 90 mins. And yes chances are if you play more minutes the lower this goes, so its worse for Mustafi and Monreal than for Rojo. But he's still right up there

    Another average player that we pay a small fortune to stink up the place week in week out.

    Needs showing the door along with Jones in January.

    He is no good as a fullback, We really should stop using him there except in extreme emergencies

    Baffling to play him at LB given his history there.

    Decision majorly backfired on Jose there.

    But if he is trying to rest up Shaw/Young - we literally have such little cover that Rojo is considered an option.

    Rojo hasn't really worked, he's no LB and an average CB.

    His level is someone like West Ham/Newcaslte

    He tries his best, he always looks like he is playing with commitment, he's just not very good

    Guy who historically plays poorly at left back and is trying to work up match fitness in poor left back performance shocker.

    I think hes had one good game at Left Back, and that was under LVG in a 442 diamond vs QPR. Think it was his debut or one of his first few games anyway.

    Should have been sold in the summer,along with Darmian. Jones could have gone next summer.


    Shockingly mediocre player

    Forgetting Marcos Rojo there I've also noticed Robbie Keane replies to nearly every footballers Instagram posts. It's almost like he's stalking out every top-level footballer.

    Rojo gained too much weight (not lukaku weight but muscles) since he joined us . He was like 75 kg when he played great games at left back and now is like 10 kg heavier and lost pace and acceleration ... People who say he can't play as left back obviously never watched him play on that position before... His crosing is far better than his tackling and is actually very useful and could be great competiton for Shaw if we forced him to play there. As CB he'll never be top quality so besides him earning big money I don't really know why is he still at the club... However he's still better than Bailly at CB.

    His recovery will last longer than they thought. What's the point of keeping him?

    I really don't know. Wouldn't get rid of him now since we need some depth at CB (even though he's always injured) but he should really be shipped off in the summer. With Tuanzebe likely brought back in and a top CB signing hopefully being made, there'd be 7 CBs for 2 positions (Lindelof, Smalling, Jones, Bailly, Rojo, Tuanzebe, new CB). Rojo should be one of the first few that'll go along with another player (Jones?).

    Yep, we should really be after one CB that could replace two players, him and Jones. They are really easily replacable.

    We don't need to replace Rojo since he's never really playing. Just get rid. Now.

    What is his injury? Are we really sure that is what's keeping him out? There were reports that we were looking to offload him in the summer. I suspect that may be in the works in this window and that is why he has been missing in action.

    I like him, but really he needs to go along with Jones. If we dont get rid of at least one of them in the summer i'll be astonished

    I think he has already had more days off than Jones had in first 4-5 years.

    I had totally forgot about him. Did he sign a new contract? Did that really happen?

    Wasn't there a time when Rojo + Jones was our best centreback combination? :rolleyes:

    Hope the guy recovers from his injury, there's a bit of craziness to him that I always liked for some reason. Time to move on though.

    There was a period under LVG where he actually played quite well and managed to balance the crazy with level headed defending to his benefit. All that is irrelevant though since hes usually injured 4/5 of the season anyway

    Somebody please take the number 5 shirt from this guy. Never deserved to take Rio's number. Take his number and give it to Lindelof.

    Tbf he switched to no.16 this season, but that's hard to notice for obvious reasons.
