Everton must avoid liability defender this summer after West Ham horror show

Everton cannot be tempted by a move for Marocs Rojo this summer, after a truly dreadful display against West Ham United last weekend.

It was only his fifth appearance of the season with the player having struggled with injury, and the Argentina international’s lack of minutes really showed.

It was an awful display from the former Sporting CP player, who simply couldn’t live with the movement of West Ham’s attacking players.

Positionally Rojo was all over the show, and his performance will surely have concerned Solskjaer.

 

His display must serve as a warning to Everton, who have been linked with a move for Rojo in the past.

TBR’s view

Last summer Everton were amazingly linked with a £30 million move for Rojo (The Daily Mail), and again in November about a possible January switch (The Metro).

Rojo is out of contract at the end of the season meaning he can move on for nothing, but Everton should not be tempted.

The 29-year-old has shown himself to be a defensive liability in his handful of appearances this season.

Ambitious Everton can do a lot better and thankfully for fans, Marcel Brands appears to favour signing younger players.
