'Like nothing I've ever experienced before' - £16m United star on Old Trafford

Marcos Rojo playing for Argentina

Manchester United's Marcos Rojo has been blown away by the atmosphere at Old Trafford.

Marcos Rojo says that he has never experienced anything like the atmosphere that he has found Old Trafford during his playing career so far.

The Argentine defender completed a move to Manchester United in the previous transfer window from Sporting Lisbon and he has clearly been impressed by his new surroundings.

"I've played in many stadia around the world but the atmosphere when you come out of the tunnel at Old Trafford is like nothing I've ever experienced before at any of my former clubs," he said to the club's official site.

So far Rojo has only been on the wining side at United's home ground, as they have sparked a mini-resurgece.

The defender has played in their wins over QPR and West Ham United and the atmosphere in both of those games would have been very positive as it was a chance to watch this new-look United team gel together.

Much has been made of the Red Devils' summer spend, but they are unquestionably stronger because of it.

However, their is now an imbalance in the squad and Louis Van Gaal may need Rojo to adjust to English life quicker than any of his more high-profile additions.

The club have a wealth of attacking options, but defensively they still seem short of quality and Rojo will need to step-up and solidify their backline if Van Gaal's men are to breach the top four. 

He is not shirking the pressure, though, and the 24-year-old says that he is enjoying life as he settles in with his new teammates. 

"Things are going very well," he said. "My family are with me, which is great, and we are enjoying living here. We are still sorting out a house, so I'm in a hotel at the moment. But I'm very happy and settled in the city. I really like Manchester.

"So far I've managed to play three games. We lost one of them but overall I think we've done well. I've been quite pleased with how it's gone."
