Marcos Rojo has left Manchester United on loan.
The Argentine defender has suffered from multiple injuries during his United career and has found himself out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He’s started just 13 games for the Red Devils and has has now joined boyhood club Estudiantes until the end of the season.
Although the deal is temporary, it’s very likely that Rojo has played his last game in a United shirt.
“You always return to the places where you were happy,” the Argentine club wrote on Twitter as they confirmed the news.
- United interested in Rondon
- Solskjaer takes sly dig at Martial
- Lingard’s touch that angered Solskjaer
“Because the sense of belonging is stronger. Your dream and that of the Pincha Family come true. We meet again.
“Welcome and thanks for coming back, Marcos! We welcome you with the heart!”
Rojo will be remembered in Manchester for being a tough defender who never allowed himself to be bullied.
The 29-year-old never backed down from a challenge and he became known for putting in a number of ugly tackles.
And, after leaving the club on loan, a video has been compiled putting his worst tackles into one video.
Alongside the tackles there’s also a couple of run-ins with former Chelsea striker Diego Costa.
Watch the video below:
There’s some shockers in there.
The Willian challenge was especially bad. He could really have done some damage to the Brazilian winger there.
The stamp on Eden Hazard was also naughty.
But, despite all these tackles, Rojo was never given a red card in his United career, which lasted 122 games.
That seems amazing when you watch the video.
The fact that Juan Mata has had more red cards in a United shirt (1) is just baffling.
Rojo is also remembered for some funnier moments at Old Trafford. Let’s not forget when he tried the most pointless rabona ever earlier this season, which failed to make it’s way past the first man.
Let’s also remember when he posted an image on Instagram which showed him having made which looked like inedible toast.
United have lost a real character in Rojo.
