Man Utd defender Rojo: Why 2014 best year of my career...

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo rates 2014 as the best of his career.

Although injuries have prevented him from featuring of late, the 24-year-old is loving his time at Old Trafford and wants to kick on upon his return.

"It's all going well," he told United Review. "I've settled in really quickly and I like the city a lot. The football club is incredible. I get on really well with my team-mates and they treat me well. And, what's more, it's even better now we are on a run of winning almost every game.

"It's good because quite a few of us all arrived at the same time so that means we're all together and we are learning together at the same time. We have English classes as well and are having a laugh together at the same time as we are learning.

"It's true that it's been a really positive year for me - probably the best year of my entire career. To be able to play in a World Cup and then to actually play in the final, that's not an easy thing for anyone to be able to achieve. I was fortunate enough to be play in the final in Brazil and, soon after, get a chance to sign for Manchester United. It's really incredible to defend the colours that are so famous and important to so many people around the world."
