Rojo started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 4-0 win over QPR on Sunday, registering a clean sheet in his club debut.

Rojo was finally able to make his debut Sunday following his €20 million move from Sporting Lisbon last month, after his work permit was delayed. He is expected to keep his starting spot in the starting XI and United have another decent clean sheet opportunity coming up against Leicester City on Sunday.

Rojo is in the starting XI for Manchester United's Premier League match against QPR on Sunday.

Rojo has not made his Man U debut due to delays in getting his work visa, but he has it now and he's inserted right into the starting XI. He's a big part of the back-line overhaul, so he should be a consistent member of the starting XI from this point forward.

Rojo has received his work permit from the UK Border Agency and he has been cleared to play in Manchester United's Premier League match against QPR on Sept. 14.

Rojo has missed two league matches while waiting for his work permit, but he will finally get to make his mark against a team that should be kept out of the goal, giving Rojo immediate clean sheet potential.

Rojo is unlikely to be available for Saturday's match against Burnley, as manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday that Rojo has still not received his work permit.

“I cannot change the law of Argentina," van Gaal said. "I am Manchester United manager, which is the biggest club in the world, but I cannot change the law. It’s only a matter of time.” Rojo is expected to be thrust into the starting XI as soon as he is eligible to play.

Rojo's transfer to Manchester United is still waiting for the Premier League to endorse the deal due to the involvement of funding group Doyen, reports the Daily Mail.

Rojo's move was consummated more than a week ago, but he has yet to play for the team as the Premier League continues to process the paperwork. The League's issue with the transfer is Doyen's claim to 75% of the fee. Rojo needs completion of the paperwork by noon on Friday to be eligible to play Burnley on Saturday.

Rojo is ineligible to play Sunday against Sunderland because he is still waiting for a work permit, manager Louis van Gaal said Friday.

Rojo officially joined United on Wednesday from Sporting Lisbon, but it'll take a few more days before he gets his work permit, which means he'll likely be available to face Burnley on Aug. 30.

Rojo completed his move to Manchester United on Wednesday on a €20 million transfer from Sporting Lisbon.

Rojo is a huge boost to a Manchester United back line that is in need of help, especially if manager Louis van Gaal continues to use the 3-5-2 scheme he employed during the World Cup with the Netherlands. Rojo may not be immediately inserted into the starting XI, but he'll be a mainstay there once he makes his first appearance.

Manchester United announced Tuesday they have agreed on a transfer for Rojo from Sporting Lisbon, with a medical and personal terms still to occur.

Sporting announced the deal will cost Manchester United €9 million, while the Red Devils will also send Nani to Portugal on loan. United need plenty of help in the back and Rojo should be starting in no time.
