Man Utd defender Rojo avoids Argentine jail sentence

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has avoided charges in homeland Argentina over a neighbours row.

Rojo has struck an out of court settlement with his accusers meaning he is no longer facing the threat of a prison sentence.

He was facing a one-year jail sentence over an alleged bottle attack.

The Mirror reports a defence lawyer for the two men he was alleged to have attacked revealed on Thursday his clients had asked for the footballer to be exonerated of any wrongdoing after reaching a "private" pact.

The pair are understood to have agreed to sign a confidentiality agreement preventing them from speaking about the agreement as part of their deal with Rojo.
