Is Marcos Rojo done at Manchester United?

Marcos Rojo admits Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told him there was no point in him joining the squad right now.

Marcos Rojo was a surprise signing by Manchester United back in the days of Louis Van Gaal. 

The Argentine international was brought in from Sporting Lisbon to play on the left side of a back three.

Unfortunately, that system never seemed to materialize successfully for United. Couple that with the fact that after Van Gaal left the club, the player struggled to impress his successors due to continuous injury problems.

Rojo became a fan favorite with his combative style when he was available but it became clear he was never going to be a first-team regular.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer let the defender go out on loan to his boyhood side Estudiantes, with a view to getting the player fit and playing regularly again.

This move has turned into a disaster. Not least because of the lockdown, but further injury to Rojo as well as disciplinary issues off the field.

It now appears that enough is enough and United’s boss may have had enough.

The player revealed to infobae, what Solskajer told him in a recent phone call.

He said:

 “I spoke to Solskjaer, the coach, about two weeks ago. Because I had to go back to England.”

“He said to me: ‘Look, now the season is over and everyone has a few days off. Then we go to play the Europa League… I’m not going to count on you because you haven’t trained for four months’.”

The writing has been on the wall for some time for Rojo, but he may not be the only one shoved out of the Theatre of Dream this summer.
