Rojo debut held up by legal case

New Manchester United signing Marcos Rojo is still unable to make his debut for the club as he is yet to receive the required working visa, BBC Sport has reported.

The 24-year-old signed for the Red Devils in a £16m deal on August 19, but has not taken part in any of the club’s three games since due to legal reasons, with a criminal investigation into an alleged row with a neighbour in Argentina back in 2010 still ongoing, with Rojo’s lawyer stating that he was awaiting trial.

However, he was confident that a settlement could be reached to ensure that Rojo is able to receive clearance to play in Man Utd’s next Premier League game against Queens Park Rangers on September 14. It had previously been believed that third-party ownership issues were the reason for the delay.

When asked about the situation, United boss Louis van Gaal said: “It’s only a matter of time. I’m manager of the biggest club in the world, but I can’t change the law.”
