Manchester United fans tear into Marcos Rojo for tackle on Mbappe

first_img 1 Perfect example of why Rojo should be sold. Stupid decision to foul him but it was outside the box— The United Stand (@UnitedStandMUFC) June 30, 2018 France got their penalty after Mbappe was upended by Rojo How bad is Rojo ? #WorldCup— Martin (@MartyMUFC1) June 30, 2018 Imagine having jones, smalling and rojo as your central defenders #FRAARG #mufc— Alan Smith (@alansmith1955) June 30, 2018 I’ll be astonished if Rojo manages to see out this half. A red card waiting to happen.— Dan (@mufc_dan87) June 30, 2018 That run from Mbappe was something else. But that was horrendous from Rojo. Can be so reckless at times.— The Peoples Person (@PeoplesPerson_) June 30, 2018 Oh dear Rojo— Fiona May (@fionamay4471) June 30, 2018 See Phil Jones has being teaching Rojo some of his tricks.— Minuru Sazuki (@PaddyWhittaker1) June 30, 2018 ROJO – “I want France to win the World Cup, for my friend Pogba. We’re very close friends.” #mufc— Tanmay.G (@tanmaygupta21) June 30, 2018 Rojo is a calamity of a footballer #mufc #FRAARG— Alan Smith (@alansmith1955) June 30, 2018 France were awarded the penalty and Antoine Griezmann slotted the ball home to give them a 13th-minute lead.Although it was a purposeful run from Mbappe, the ball looked to be heading out of play before he was fouled by the Manchester United defender, suggesting the tackle may not have been entirely necessary.And many across Twitter, including some United supporters, launched scathing attacks on the defender for his cynical challenge on Mbappe.Below you can see some of the best tweets criticising Rojo. It’s been an electric start to the first knockout game at the 2018 World Cup as two of the tournament’s heavyweights France and Argentina lock horns for a place in the quarter-finals.Les Bleus started the game more positively and the referee had a huge decision to make after Marcos Rojo felled Kylian Mbappe in the box after a brilliant lung-busting run from the gifted teenager. Rojo gives me headaches.
