Although Marcos Rojo is currently on the injured list it appears the 27-year-old Argentine defender still has a long-term future at Old Trafford.

Yesterday, it was announced that the player had put pen-to-paper on a new contract with the club with the new deal keeping him at the club until June 2021 with the option of another year tagged on the end.

Naturally, Rojo is delighted with the deal, remarking to the media,

‘Since I joined Manchester United, it has been everything I thought it would be and more. I am extremely happy to extend my stay at this great club. When I joined, my aim was to help the team win trophies and we have done that over the past couple of seasons. I am working hard to get back on the pitch. I would like to thank the fans for their support and the manager for the confidence and help he has given me both on and off the pitch.’

Discussing the deal, Jose Mourinho also had some kind words to say about the player, commenting to the media,

‘Marcos has gone from strength to strength over the past couple of seasons, and has always shown great professionalism. Although his injury has kept him side-lined over these past few weeks, Marcos is working hard to return to full fitness. He is always ready to put his body on the line for this club and I am delighted he has signed a new contract.’

Good news all round I`d say.
