    Marcos Rojo

    Born: Argentina, 1990 ; Age: 24
    Current club: Sporting Clube de Portugal
    Centre Back / Left Back


    Played in Argentina for Estudiantes La Plata, so under Sabella and moved to Europe in Russia where he played an year for Spartak Moscow.
    Since 2012 in Lisbon playing for Sporting.

    We were linked to him before the World Cup? Most of us couldn't trust such a move but after the World Cup I am starting to change my opinion. He is 1.89 in height so more a central defender but now playing Left Back, I guess he most probably could play defending midfielder too and he's dangerous at set pieces, also scored a goal against Nigeria and was the only Argentinian to make it in the "World Cup Best-11" using Castrol Index.

    Not for me, looks to clumsy on ball when put under any pressure.

    Decent enough defensively but not great on ball from back or going foward.

    Would be a worry if they look this far down the list of players available.

    I'd love to have him as a backup for Alba. More defensive minded and a real fighter who gives his all, which we need. We need diversity.

    Would never fit at leftback and I haven't seen him play in the centre.

    I've seen how the catalan press operate, and familiar with the fickle nature of most blaugrana folks. If messi isn't spared, there isn't much chance for his lesser compatriots. Rojo is part of ARG's future, and he's dear to us albiceleste fans irrespective of the differing opinions. I'd rather he develop in a footballing environment more conducive to his development.

    Rojo is great at defending, great at passing, he's tall, fast and left-footed. He is also young, so there's a lot of time for him to develop. I rate him much higher than Marcos, tbh.

    I think he has great potential as a CB, a lot less as a LB. If we can get him for a decent price, I wouldn't mind him.

    It doesn't make any sense, he's a LB after all ....

    Apparently he's Mourinho's 2nd choice if we don't get Filipe Luis.
