In a recent interview with Inside United, Marcos Rojo revealed his career ambitions at the club and admitted that he is desperate to beat City at Old Trafford after losing the reverse fixture 1-0 at the Etihad.
Rojo, who was signed from Sporting Lisbon for £16 million, wants to remain fit for the rest of the campaign and hopes that United qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season.
Rojo has been sidelined since early December after picking up a thigh strain and could be set for a return to action this weekend against QPR.
“It’s vital we win the next Manchester derby at home in front of our own supporters – I think we are going to win that one,” said Rojo.
“As for expectations from now to the end of the season, well, to try and give my absolute best in every game until the end.”
“I hope that we pick up some good results along the way so we can be in with a shout in the shake-up for the title.”
“My minimum objective this year is to qualify for next year’s Champions League.”
“It would be great to pick up a European trophy with this club. That and a league title is what I really want to win.”
The versatile defender has impressed fans with some decent performances until now and will likely be a vital cog in United’s defence as the Old Trafford club hopes to go on another long unbeaten run.
