New signing desperate to make Manchester United debut against QPR

Marcos Rojo - Portugal Vs Argentina, 9th February 2011

Manchester United's summer signing Marcos Rojo says that he cannot wait to play for his new club.

After finally securing the work permit that has delayed his first ever outing in a United shirt, Rojo and the Manchester outfit's supporters will be hoping that he gets his chance in the Premier League clash against Queens Park Rangers next weekend.

The 24-year-old's transfer to United certainly hasn't been smooth. First, third-party ownership complicated the initial bid and then Rojo refused to train with Sporting Lisbon before eventually apologising. When a deal to United was finally complete, the work permit threw another spanner in the works.

Now that the UK Border Agency has confirmed his permit and he is 100% a Manchester United United, Rojo says that he cannot wait to start playing.

He told the Argentine press whilst on international duty: "I am desperate to get onto the field and play because I have not been able to step onto Old Trafford.

“My life has changed a lot, I am very happy to be at Manchester United, a top team in the world, sharing a dressing room with players like Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Angel di Maria and now Radamel Falcao.

“This is a very important step in my career as a player and as a person. Everything that has happened to me since the World Cup has been a dream.”

Should they all be fit by the time United face QPR at Old Trafford next Sunday, then the defender could make his debut alongside both of the Red Devils' deadline-day signings, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao.

United boss Louis van Gaal will be desperate to see his new signings hit the ground running and hopefully secure his new team's first win of the Premier League season.
