Manchester United will call Marcus Rojo to order and remind him of his responsibilities after he was pictured breaking lockdown rules in Argentina. The defender who is at Estudiantes on loan until the end of the season was pictured in a social media video playing poker and smoking with his friends.

The South American country like other countries is also on lockdown until at least May 10 due to the coronavirus pandemic which has resulted in the prohibition of gatherings.

Therefore, Man United might make contact with the 30-year-old to remind him of his responsibilities with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer likely to have been put off by the player’s conduct.

Rojo made just 1 Premier League start for the Red Devils this season before going out on loan in January. The Argentine has not played any major part in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans since he took over at Old Trafford.

Marcos Rojo was limited to just 9 appearances in all competitions before leaving on loan. Meanwhile, the arrival of Harry Maguire pushed him further down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

The defender is hoping to extend his loan spell at Estudiantes and revealed this in an interview before football was suspended.

Rojo said: “If it depends on me, I will speak to Manchester United’s management about the possibility of staying here for another six months,” Rojo told local radio programme Estudiantes Y Su Gente.

“I will feel a tremendous sense of pain if I have to leave after playing in so few matches. I am completely recovered now, and fit to play once more.”

He is the latest footballer to break lockdown rules thus far as other players like Everton’s Moise Kean and Aston Villa’s Mark Grealish have been guilty of the same.
