I am however struggling to see how this league physically is going to help him

Have been to Denmark a few times and those Vikings are big. He may be smashed around as much as holland or Germany 

Auckland will rise once more

Surely he needs a manager with a setup that suits his style of football and will give him a role that plays to his strengths. He had a poor first season at Melbourne before the false 9 setup Ange played.

Don't think it's his size but tactical inflexibility that is the issue.

Are there any reports about how he played at all?  Hopefully he did enough to continue getting a look in for a starting spot.

They have a new coach. Only 1 mention of Rojas in match report.

SønderjyskE had taken a trip to Vejle in the spring's first match and Glen Riddersholm's debut as SønderjyskE coach. 

The free kick from Absalonsen was cleared to Marcos Rojas, who tried to score from the edge of the box, but the ball hit Bajza's face in the face and unfortunately it was not a return ball.

I’ve spoken to a couple people that support Heerenveen and they said he was technically a good player and a nice guy but perhaps too nice. I agreed that I’d always thought that about Marco. There’s not a huge amount of fight in him which is certainly something you need in Europe where every player in your club will kill for a starting spot, and if you’re a passenger you won’t last. The A-League isn’t quite the same and it shows that many talented A-League players don’t quite make an impact in Europe - although I think Marco is the best example of this.

You can put Marco and Ryan side by side and compare physical and technical attributes but I don’t believe that’s a factor at all. There are plenty of small players holding their own in the Eredivisie. Desire and fight on the other hand, these two players are chalk and cheese.

Very good summary of why likely hasn't gone so well for Rojas in Europe.

Pro football, esp on the continent is brutal. Marinovic had some insightful comments about it, with regard to his ex Whitecaps team mate, wunder kid Alphonso Davies who was off to Bayern Munich.

You need a very tough mentality, and huge desire as much as skill to thrive.

I found some highlights of the match. It looks like he was quite involvement at times.

Rojas not required off the bench as SonderjyskeE beat Esbjerg 3-1.

Esbjerg did have a player sent off at 60 mins, so that may have influenced whether Rojas got minutes or not.

I wonder if marco will do a burns and come crawling back but be absolutely garbage. Getting pretty embarrassing at this point, he could be playing regular footy down under but would rather ride the pine in a lesser european league. waste of talent.

He came back once already and was still one of the best in the league. Burnsy's nosedive is definitely the exception rather than the rule.

Personally I have no issue with a player trying to make a career in Europe, not everyone is content being a big fish in a small pond and I really don't think a bit of ambition is something to shame him for. Would be a far bigger waste of talent if he was playing for the Victory beating up on CCM.

Fair point. But he has been to Europe twice, and by all accounts for a player of his talents, failed miserably (maybe bar Switzerland) twice. I do question whether or not its his will to play there or his fathers. His mental strength just isnt there, as a player who relies heavily on confidence the fan support is also not there. Atleast in the A league he was making the most of his talent and its a real shame he cant do the same in Europe. He is getting older not younger, about to enter his primes years as a bench warmer.
