Just a couple of weeks after lighting up Old Trafford with a failed rabona, Marcos Rojo was given another opportunity to impress for Manchester United on Thursday night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave the Argentina international a starting spot in the clash against AZ Alkmaar, and the 29-year-old didn’t exactly vindicate his manager’s faith in him.
The defender had been linked with a move to fellow Premier League side Everton for the second consecutive year in the summer transfer window, but failed to see a move materialise. And based on this showing, the Toffees may feel they have dodged a bullet.
The 6 foot 2 man made no tackles, interceptions or blocks, and lost possession 13 times – the second-most of any United player on the pitch.
After seeing Rojo’s poor display, United fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the Argentine’s performance.

Many supporters of the Manchester side hammered him for simply not being good enough, with one fan in particular insisting that he is “League One quality at best”.
Some Red Devils fans questioned his technical ability, and pointed to his tendency to clear the ball when under no pressure at all.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Rojo has got to be the poorest player on the ball at Man Utd. Every chance he gets it’s got to be hoofed down the line to absolutely nobody. #MUFC

Marcos rojo is league 1 quality at best, how he’s still even a sniff away from united’s first team says it all

Dalot, Rojo, Fred and Matic won’t be at #MUFC next season. Horrible

Rojo and Fred might as well be wearing red shirts with the amount of times they’re giving away the ball.
Fred especially is on a one-man mission to gift the ball to the opposition.#mufc

Huge fan of waking up at 2.55am to watch Marcos Rojo give the ball away 23 times in the first half
