Cape Town - Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo still hopes that the club can pick up a few results and be in the title mix.

Manutd.com report that the Argentina star is chasing success on three fronts - local, national and European.

Signed in the summer from Sporting Lisbon, Rojo has made a decent start to life at Manchester United but his run in the first team has been hampered with a number of injuries.

Rojo is keeping one eye on the upcoming Manchester derby as the Red Devils seek to break a losing streak against their "noisy neighbours".

It’s vital we win the next Manchester derby at home in front of our own supporters - I think we are going to win that one,” said Rojo.

"As for expectations from now to the end of the season, well, to try and give my absolute best in every game until the end, and hope that we pick up some good results along the way so we can be in with a shout in the shake-up for the title."

Looking at his long term goals, Rojo saids: “My minimum objective this year is to qualify for next year’s Champions League. It would be great to pick up a European trophy with this club. That and a league title is what I really want to win.”
