Man Utd defender Rojo: I want Estudiantes stay

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has declared he wants to stay with loan club Estudiantes.

The defender returned to Argentina to join his former club in January, but only managed to notch up one appearance before the coronavirus crisis wreaked havoc on football schedules.

He said: “I spoke to (United manager Ole Gunnar) Solskjaer, the coach, about two weeks ago. Because I had to go back to England. He said to me: 'Look, now the season is over and everyone has a few days off.

"Then we go to play the Europa League. I don't need to tell you: you're going to come here, you have to be alone for 15 days and I'm not going to count on you because you haven't trained for 4 months.'

“Then I told him that it's said that at the beginning of August, training returns in Argentina. 'If I stay here, is it better? Obviously, with your permission, I can train in Estudiantes', I asked him.

"And then he told me: 'After the Europa League there will be two weeks off. Come when we are about to start.'

“Now a thousand things are spoken, but most of them are lies. If I start to deny I'd be here all day. I'm calm because I spoke. My idea is also to try to stay at Estudiantes.

"I played a game, got injured and all of this happened. That is why I will see in September if the loan can be extended and continue for a few more months."
