Gary Neville slams Marcos Rojo for not being good enough

Gary Neville has slammed Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo for his horrible tackle on Everton’s Idrissa Gueye.

The Argentinian has kickstarted his career under Jose Mourinho in the centre of defence following injuries to Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly.

However, he was lucky to get away with a two-footed lunge on Gueye, where referee Michael Oliver opted to show him yellow rather than red.

Speaking during the game, Neville claimed Rojo was lucky to stay on the pitch.

“I think that’s a red card,” he said.

“When people go in like that these days… that’s a shocker.

“When you leave the ground like that and go in like that, it’s a red card. He’s got away with that has Rojo. He’s a very, very lucky boy.”

Supporters on social media were furious with his decision and you can understand why, it was a clear red and it was a shame to see him as a liability once again.

Although he has performed decently in recent weeks, I can’t see him in the starting XI much longer, especially with Eric Bailly returning to the bench against Everton.

Man United have struggled to see out wins and have dropped more points in the final ten minutes than any other side in the league, it’s only a matter of time before changes are made.
