    I don’t rate Rojo at CB - but can understand why some people do. He has had a few good games there.

    However, I can’t understand why anyone would think he’s our best back up left bank, have you ever seen him play there? He’s appalling. He’s utterly dire. Young, Darmian and Dalot are all better than Rojo at left back.

    Have you seen him play at LB for us??? If you think he’s a bad CB, then he’s an absolutely diabolical LB. It’s like playing 10 vs 12, he’s more useful to the opposition than our team. He makes Ashley Young look like a prime Roberto Carlos.

    I would take both Young and Darmian at LB in a heartbeat over him. I would volunteer to play LB ahead of him.

    Had one good game at left back against De Bruyne in a Manchester derby a few years ago but every other time he's played there he's been atrocious. Despite some decent defensive qualities he's an accident waiting to happen at centre back. Like Darmian, his career here has just been a waste of time.

    Is there really a need for so many laughing emojies? We get the picture, you think it's funny.

    Reports of £25 mill for Rojo can't be serious? We'd be lucky to get £10 mill for him, he's absolutely useless.

    I wonder if Conte would be interested in him as well.

    It is Ironic that Van Gaal bought Rojo because he did a good job marking Robben as a left back in the world cup.
    Anyway ,Getting rid of Rojo and Sanchez would be one good step.

    I understand the club wanting to recoup some kind of small fee for him but surely it’s counterproductive to keep him on those wages if no one wants to pay anything for him? Just give him away on a free and get him off the wage bill.

    Seriously?

    In the entire time he's been here he's had one good period, which lasted the grand total of two or three months (and even then he got away with two blatant red card tackles). Outside of those couple of months he's been terrible. The fact that even Jones has been far better and more consistent than him says it all, let alone Smalling who has been absolute miles better.

    I wouldn't pay 25 quid for him let alone £25 million.

    Not saying he’s a good LB.

    But IMO he’s no worse than Darmian, but slightly better going forward. Young might be better going forward but he’s no better than Rojo at the back, and he’s 34.

    But all things considered, we really ought to have a much better backup LB than all three.
