Ex-Man Utd star Rojo injured in FIRST Boca Juniors training session due to 'inactivity' after 15 months without a game

FORMER Manchester United defender Marcus Rojo has suffered an injury in his first traning session with Boca Juniors.

The 30-year-old, who signed for the Argentinian club at the end of the January transfer window, has reportedly suffered the problem 'due to inactivity'.

And that appears to be an understandable reason given he has not played competitive football for 15 months.

Speaking after picking up the injury, Rojo told Argentine newspaper Ole: "I was training on my own, but it's not the same.

"Miguel told me that he had a plan for me to get quick to compete for a place (sic). It was good from the physical, but the first days it cost me a lot."

Rojo joined Boca on transfer deadline day having not featured for Man Utd since November 2019.

Ahead of the move, the Argentine's trainer Carlos Castro posted on Facebook saying he was pleased with his condition.

He said: "Marcos Rojo is happy, improving day by day and about to begin training with Boca.

"As his trainer I’m impressed at the physical capacity he has, his recovery and that extra temperament typical of a great high-performance athlete."

He won the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League during his time at Old Trafford.

And he now returns to his home country of Argentina nine years after leaving Estudiantes to join Spartak Moscow.
