Manchester United Football Club were hammered 4-1 by Borussia Dortmund on the day, with Jose Mourinho suffering his first loss as boss. However, the opponents on the day were far superior in terms of fitness, having had an extra two weeks of training and three more games played.
One man in particular who struggled was defender Marcos Rojo. He came on as a substitute at half-time and he never really got to grips with the game whatsoever.
The Argentinian played in the centre of defence alongside Eric Bailly, and the real low point for the 26-year-old was when young talent Ousmane Dembele made him look rather silly for Dortmund’s third goal.
At the end of the day, Rojo has had a very mixed time at the Theatre of Dreams so far, but as his career here has gone on, he has looked worse.
He is certainly a player I can see being shipped out during this window, and I’m not alone in that thought as other reds were raging at him all over social media.
Check out some of the tweets about Marcos Rojo here:
Ibra and Mhikitaryan must love playing against Jones and Rojo in training everyday. Ibra probably feels like he is god.

Jones is Jones. Rojo is Rojo. Smalling isn't *that* good. Bailly is young. Badly need bolstering in central defence.

Really like Bailly, very reliable. The kind of guy you'd bring to Vegas. As for Rojo, I'd feel safer if Ted Bundy was my uber driver.

Not quite sure how Argentina made the World Cup final with Rojo who spends most of the game on his arse and Romero who couldn't catch a cold

Wi-Fi as bad as Rojo's defending. Mourinho consulting Faria regularly this half and still showing signs of frustration. #mufc

Jones or Rojo. One has to go I think. Can't be having both of them as defensive cover.

Rojo's season is already over. What a dribble by Dembélé.
