Paul Scholes: Marcos Rojo is Manchester United’s weak link

Paul Scholes has slammed Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo after a woeful performance against Feyenoord.

Jose Mourinho’s side lost their Europa League opener on Thursday night after the Argentinian’s mistake lead to the only-goal.

Rojo pushed further up the pitch and failed to recover his position, resulting in Tonny Vilhena finding the back of the net.

Speaking about Rojo, Scholes claims Feyenoord players identified him as the weak link.

“I think Rojo has had a tough night,” he said.

“He hasn’t had minutes this season and has struggled, I think the Feyenoord players have identified him as a weakness and have made him run.

“Feyenoord’s wide players were the two most dangerous players on the pitch.”

Jose Mourinho gave Rojo the opportunity to challenge Luke Shaw in the starting XI after the Englishman had played in all of the club’s matches so far.

However, he failed to achieve anything throughout the game and left fans questioning how he was still at the club.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson would have been a stronger replacement for Shaw at left-back and Rojo’s recent showing has only strengthened fans belief in his inability to play consistent first-team football.
