David de Gea trolls Marcos Rojo in new Twitter photo

Football News

David de Gea appears to have trolled his Manchester United teammate Marcos Rojo at the airport ahead of the Red Devils’ first Champions League group stage match against PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night.

Rojo posted a photo of himself and De Gea, who appears to be holding up the passport of the Argentine defender, on Twitter.

Rojo found himself in hot water with Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal earlier this summer after failing to report for pre-season training in the United States because he didn’t renew his passport.

Van Gaal was left fuming with the South American, who has not played a single minute of competitive football for the Red Devils this season and faced a fine of £140,000, according to a Daily Mail report in July.

But the issue has now been resolved and Rojo could be handed his first appearance of the 2015-16 campaign against PSV at the Philips Stadion.

Blind keeping Rojo out of the team

Rojo, though, faces a battle to win back his place in Van Gaal’s starting line-up, due to the impressive recent form of Daley Blind.

Although not a centre-back by trade, the Netherlands international has performed well alongside Chris Smalling in recent weeks and produced a Man of the Match display in the 3-1 win over fierce rivals Liverpool on Saturday.

If - and it’s a big if - Blind can continue performing well in central defence, Rojo can expect to spend even longer watching on from the sidelines.

But once United face one of the Premier League’s big guns - particularly Manchester City - Van Gaal would probably be best off reverting to a centre-back with pace, strength and the ability to head the ball.
