Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has confirmed he has returned to Old Trafford after a frustrating loan spell at his boyhood club Estudiantes.
The 30-year-old Argentine centre-back posted a heartfelt goodbye message on his personal Instagram account, which was re-posted by @ManUnitedZone_.
He returned to his homeland on a short-term loan until the end of June after falling out of favour with Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, the 61-cap Argentina international only made one appearance for Los Pincharratas due to a recurring thigh problem.
The Red Devils have tried to get rid of Rojo in four of the past five summer transfer windows and will sell him this summer if they receive the right bid. Solskjaer considers the veteran surplus to requirements as he has put plans in motion for a big clear out in the transfer window.
Naturally, many United fans slammed the “deadwood” on social media, with one supporter insisting he is “stealing a living” as he currently earns wages worth £80,000-a-week. Another reserved his wrath for Ed Woodward, tweeting “Woodward out” if the executive vice-chairman cannot sell him in the summer.
Scroll through some of the scathing reactions so far…
If Ed can't get rid of this deadwood then I'm all for Woodward out. He's still stealing a living whilst Man U pay his wages!!!
