Marcos Rojo


Faustino Marcos Alberto Rojo, born 20 March 1990, is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a defender for Boca Juniors and the Argentina national team.


He began his career at local club Estudiantes de La Plata, where he won the Copa Libertadores in 2009, played in the FIFA Club World Cup Final later that year and won the Primera Division in 2010. After a short spell with Spartak Moscow he joined Sporting CP in 2012, and transferred to Manchester United for £16 million two years later.


He won four trophies with the English club: the FA Cup in 2016 and the FA Community Shield, EFL Cup and UEFA Europa League in 2017.


After falling out of favour at Manchester United, Rojo returned to Estudiantes on loan in January 2020, before making a permanent transfer to Boca Juniors in February 2021, almost seven years after arriving in England.
