'My mother told me to come home'

English Premier League

After leaving Manchester United on loan last month, Marcos Rojo has revealed his mother told him to return home.

After falling out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since last season, Rojo has been heavily linked with an exit in the past few months.

With the Argentine reportedly not getting an offer in England, he made the return to his home nation to re-join Estudiantes on loan.

“Many things came together," he told El Intransigente. "I need to play, return to my level, the family insisted, my old woman told me to come back.

"I had many offers to go to other clubs, but what's better than being at home. I hope to be on the pitch as soon as possible.

“I want to go to practice and be with the boys as soon as possible. I’m very happy. It’s something I dreamed of, there was a chance and it could be done. I talked to Sebastian (Veron) quite a lot but one day my head clicked and I decided to return. It all came together.

“I suffered a lot of injuries lately, I went to the bench a lot. And I needed to compete and what better than to do it at home.

"Argentine football grew a lot and this is going to be a beautiful challenge. I talked with almost everyone and they helped me at this time. I don’t know what to say to the fans, it’s incredible.”
