Manchester United new boy Marcos Rojo has declared that manager Louis van Gaal is making him a better player since his arrival at the club, as reported by the Daily Star.
The 24-year-old moved to the Manchester club this summer from Sporting Lisbon, with Van Gaal paying £16 million to bring him in.
Despite being a natural left back, Rojo has been primarily used in the centre of defence by the Dutch manager.
This has not impacted on his performances, with Rojo impressing considerably in the last few games.
With the Man Utd back four having been subject to considerable change over the course of the still young season, Rojo credits his performances to the improvement that he has undergone under the former Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal.
Rojo said: “He [Van Gaal] is brilliant.
“He’s a great manager who always wants to win and that’s the message he gets across to us.
“He wants the best and that’s what he demands from his team.”
Man Utd have improved over the last two games, narrowly winning home matches against West Ham and Everton, with both games finishing 2-1.
