Manchester United centre-back Marcos Rojo will be funding a facilities overhaul at Argentinian club Las Malvinas.
The Argentinian international has never played for the side – having joined Estudiantes LP at the age of 10 – but his family still lives very close to the club.
The area surrounding the club is where Rojo grew up so he is keen to give something back to the community where he learned to play football at a young age.
According to Argentinean sources the World Cup runner up has told the club that he will be funding a new dressing room, new bathrooms, a watering system for the pitch, new kits for every team at the club – and facilities to make sure that those kits are always clean!
The current facilities at Las Malvinas are far from stellar and probably make any local park in the UK look like Wembley Stadium.

Give it all back to you
This is not the Manchester United player’s first philanthropic action as he is a high profile in the Argentinean media for investing his wages back into his roots.
And, since his arrival in England in August, Rojo has been keen to get involved with charity events including work with Premier League Kicks and the Manchester United Foundation.
