The Argentine has never been managed by the Scotsman as he was signed by Louis Van Gaal after David Moyes’ ill fated tenure.
The Dutchman’s era ended poorly but Rojo has managed to prove he’s capable of being a solid defender under Jose Mourinho‘s management.
In fact the former Sporting man has had his best season in a red shirt under the former Chelsea manager’s reign and it’s a credit to both that that is the case.
Mourinho had the tactical insight to recognise that the defender is far better as a centre-back than he is as a left-back and the pair have since reaped the benefits.
According to the Mirror, Marcos said to AS: “At Christmas, my whole family came to spend the holidays, it is not customary to throw fireworks. They all go to bed early, but I wanted to surprise my family and I threw them after midnight.
“We played the next day and Ferguson always comes to see us when we play at Old Trafford. I wanted to die, I thought he would kick me out the club but luckily took it well.”
While Sir Alex is no longer involved on a management level, he’s still a part of the club as he’s currently a director and club ambassador.
The United legend has been reluctant to get involved with the first team on any level but has been encouraged on occasion by Jose to have a few words with the first team or to join them on the bus rides to and from games.
Ferguson has been seen amongst the fans during matches at almost every fixture and while it’s a pleasant sight to see, most supporters would prefer to see him on the bench.
Either way it doesn’t appear as though Marcos Rojo is going anywhere any time soon having recently renewing his contract with the club.
