Some Manchester United fans on Twitter have been reacting to Marcos Rojo’s disciplinary record after one user revealed how many times the Argentine defender has been sent off in his professional footballing career.
@AlexLUHS tweeted out that Rojo has never been sent off while playing for Manchester United. The Argentina international has only been sent off once in his club career and that was while playing for Sporting CP in Portugal.
Fun fact of the day:
Marcos Rojo has never been sent off for Manchester United. In fact, he has only received ONE straight red card in his entire career, playing for Sporting Lisbon in 2014.
