Marcus Rojo has recently taken a swipe at his former teammate Harry Maguire and his former coach Ole Gunner Solskjaer. The defender was signed in 2014 on the back of a stellar World Cup run with Argentina. He made 122 appearances for the Manchester Club in seven years.

In a recent interview, Rojo opened up about his disagreement with Ole Gunner Solskjaer and said, “One day I went to Solskjaer’s office to tell him to let me leave for the other club or put in the starting lineup, but he told me that Maguire had to play yes or yes because of the money they paid for him. He [Maguire] was making huge mistakes already and I told Solskjaer: 'Son of a b*tch let me play because this guy is making huge mistakes every week… [laughs].” 

Rojo started just 12 games under Solskjaer that season before being sent on a six-month loan to Estudiantes in January 2020. Rojo also said that he was relieved Maguire is no longer a starter in the team and is replaced by Lissandro Martinez. “In 2019 I was playing in the Europa League, but I was really angry with the Manchester coach because he was putting Maguire instead of me, who thank God finally they took him out from the starting lineup for Licha Martínez."

Maguire came to Manchester United for a record fee of 80 million pounds from Leicester City in the summer of 2019. He has made 172 appearances for the Red Devils so far and isn’t the first-choice centre-back. Marcus Rojo left United for Boca Juniors in the February of the 20/21 season on a free transfer. He won the Argentinian League in 2022 with the Boca Juniors.
