Nemanja Vidic issues warning to Man United star: You can do much better
Nemanja Vidic has challenged Marcos Rojo to step his game up for Manchester United this season
Nemanja Vidic has told Marcos Rojo to step his game up for Manchester United.
The Argentina international has been a regular fixture in Manchester United’s defence under Jose Mourinho this season and has also been deployed in central defence.
Rojo has scored one goal in 17 Premier League games for Manchester United this season and it would appear that Red Devils boss Mourinho is a keen admirer of the defender.
Vidic has been encouraged by what he has seen from Rojo in recent months but feels that he has the ability to step up a gear at Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Vidic said: “Rojo is a player who has done well at full-back for Argentina.
“Is he good enough to play central defence? Look, of course he’s a good player; he plays for Man United most games. Can he play better? Of course.”
Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday as they look to continue their fight for a top-four finish.
