Marcos Rojo’s woeful defending against Leicester gets fan backlash

by Sam Peoples

Marcos Rojo‘s awful defending for Wes Morgan’s equaliser against Manchester United today earned a huge backlash from fans.

The Argentinian defender’s woeful attempt didn’t come close to stopping Morgan and the problem is that it’s not the first time we’ve seen him do that this season.

Away at Tottenham Hotspur, Rojo was at fault for at least one of their goals and possibly two. Game after game his defending has been nothing short of atrocious and fans are pretty angry to see him still in the team at the moment.

I warmed to Rojo at an earlier point in his United career but I’m well past that now and there’s no way he should be starting for us at left-back. Why did Cameron Borthwick-Jackson not start? He’s fit and playing with the U21s and a far better left-back than Rojo.

Every player makes mistakes, that is part of football, but when you see the same mistake repeated week-in-week-out, fans lose patience and it’s reached that stage with Rojo now.
