Estudiantes president Veron annoyed with Rojo - but still wants Man Utd deal

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is once again in trouble for floating lockdown laws.

The Argentine is on loan with Estudiantes in his homeland.

He was filmed breaking social distancing laws whilst playing cards with friends amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Now the veteran was caught with friends entering a sports club with paddle rackets.

And Estudiantes president Juan Sebastian Veron is not happy.

He told Radio Provincia, via SportWitness:"About what happened in the quarantine with Marcos Rojo and the videos that emerged, I'm not babysitting anyone and everyone knows what they do, obviously I do not like these things."

But Veron added that would still like Rojo to stay beyond this season.

"What happens to Marcos Rojo does not depend on us, it depends on United and the strength he can do," Veron added.

"I spoke to Marcos, I love him very much because I also have known him since he was a boy. He told me that he wants to continue and stay here, hopefully he can give but it doesn't depend on the club."
