Marcos Rojo

Faustino Marcos Alberto Rojo born 20 March 1990, known simply as Marcos Rojo, is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a defender for Manchester United and the Argentine national team.

He began his career at local club Estudiantes de La Plata, where he won the Copa Libertadores in 2009 and played in the Club World Cup Final later that year. After a short spell with Spartak Moscow he joined Sporting CP in 2012, and transferred to Manchester United for £16 million two years later.

Rojo made his first appearance for Argentina at senior level in 2011 and has since earned over 50 caps. He was part of their side which reached the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, and was the only Argentine included in the Castrol Performance Index Team of the Tournament.
