Marcos Rojo is feeling settled at Manchester United after recovering from a knee injury in order to reclaim a place in Jose Mourinho's plans.

The Argentina international joined the club from Lisbon outfit Sporting in 2014 and has made a real impact after adjusting to performing in the Premier League.

Although an unused substitute at Newcastle United last weekend, he started the previous fixture against Saturday's Emirates FA Cup opponents Huddersfield Town and produced an accomplished display.

In an exclusive interview with the latest edition of Inside United, the official club magazine, the 27-year-old made it clear why he has unfinished business with United and is determined to win the ultimate prize in English football.

"The challenge in the next few years is to win the Premier League. I don’t want to leave England without winning the title."

When asked what his ambitions are over the course of the next five years, the defender replied: I feel my thinking in the next few years must be to try to stay as long as I can and to be here at one of the biggest clubs you can be at. My family is really happy to be here and I am also very pleased to be here.

"The challenge in the next few years is to win the Premier League. I don’t want to leave England without winning the title.

“It’s great and I’m very happy here,” he continued. “At first, it’s true it was difficult but it always is difficult getting used to a new city. Now I’ve found a love for the city. My daughters are very happy here.

”My eldest daughter is at school at the moment so when I come in to train and work hard, I get home and knowing my wife and daughters are happy contributes to your general feeling.

Rojo will hope to earn a recall to the starting line-up for the weekend encounter at the John Smith's Stadium as the Reds aim to bounce back from the disappointing result at Newcastle by clinching a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
