Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has revealed that players stay away from Marcos Rojo in training because of his studs-up challenges.
Rojo has been earmarked as one of the players who is set to leave the club come the end of the season as United seek to rebuild the squad under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Rojo has gained a reputation at Old Trafford as a slightly reckless defender but despite his tackles, the Argentine has never been shown a red card in the league since joining United back in 2014 from Sporting Lisbon,
In an interview with Sky Sports, Shaw was asked which United player is the most aggressive in training, “It’s got to be Marcos Rojo. Honestly, no-one goes near him in training. He’s the sort of tough cookie in the team. In training, he’s probably on the floor 90 percent of the time, slide tackling everyone with his studs up, so everyone knows to stay away from him.
“But it’s just one of them, you’ve just got to allow it because it’s the way he is. But people like that aggression, it’s sometimes needed – but not as aggressive as that. But he’s a nice one to have on your team.”
