Ex Man United defender Marcos Rojo destroys Harry Maguire in devastating interview
Marcos Rojo, a former Manchester United defender, has strongly criticized former teammate and captain Harry Maguire.
Rojo was a part of the Red Devils from 2014 to 2021 but didn't get many opportunities to play during his tenure at Old Trafford.
Following his club-record £80 million transfer from Leicester, Maguire became the first-choice for the captaincy midway through the season when Ashley Young departed to Inter Milan.
Rojo was unhappy about being sidelined in favor of Maguire, who was eventually replaced by his fellow countryman Lisandro Martinez after joining from Ajax the previous summer.
Rojo accused Maguire of making frequent mistakes and alleged that Solskjaer informed him that the reason for Maguire's continued selection was due to the high transfer fee that United paid for him.
Rojo granted an exceptional interview to TyC Sports during which he said: "In 2019 I was playing in the Europa League, but I was really angry with the Manchester coach [Solskjaer] because he was putting Maguire [in the team] instead of me, who thank god finally they took him out from the starting line-up for Licha [Lisandro] Martinez.
"One day I went to Solskjaer’s office to tell him to let me leave for the other club or put [me] in the starting line-up, but he told me that Maguire had to play because of the money they paid for him.
"He [Maguire] was making huge mistakes already and I told Solskjaer: 'Son of a b***h let me play because this guy is making huge mistakes every week' [laughs]."
This season, Maguire has had difficulty securing first-team opportunities and committed a significant mistake during United's elimination from the Europa League against Sevilla.
After spending seven years with United, where he played in 122 matches, Rojo is now leading Boca Juniors in his home country of Argentina.
