Manchester United defender Rojo ‘very happy’ for Varela

Marcos Rojo is happy for Guillermo Varela over his breakthrough at Manchester United.

The 22-year-old has broken into Manchester United’s first team squad this season after returning from a loan spell at Real Madrid to make eight appearances for Louis van Gaal’s side.

Rojo told MUTV: “I am very happy for him as he has been playing well.

“It’s not too long since we met and we’ve become mates. He’s also my chauffeur! He takes me to all the matches as we live close by, so he’s been doing all the driving which is fine by me.

“In the last few months we have spent a lot of time together and we have become really good mates. He’s a really good guy, a great person and a big player for United.”
