At the beginning of February, Marcos Rojo was presented with great fanfare by Estudiantes. The defender managed to play only one game due to the pandemic that suspended football in practically the whole world. With heartfelt words the defender said goodbye to the fans.
The Argentine defender, Marcos Rojo, said goodbye to the fans ‘Pincha Rata’ with a heartfelt letter published on his Instagram account. The player was informed by Manchester United that he must return to England, in the midst of negotiations with Estudiantes to extend his loan.
« When I found out that I was going back to Estudiantes a few months ago, I said that it didn’t matter how long this return will last and that I just wanted to enjoy the happiness that being home again generated for me! »
« I SWEAR I WAS HAPPY! For seeing my old woman’s eyes full of tears again before entering to play. For stepping on UNO’s lawn. For feeling the support of the glories of my club. For receiving enormous gestures of affection and encouragement from the entire DJ family … For wearing the colors of my life once again, « he added.
“I know it was not enough. I know that maybe I will be in debt for not being able to return so much love and unconditionality! I have to say goodbye, and I go with choking sleep, with a bittersweet taste, and chewing the anger of knowing that the effort and the desire to return lacked football, « he said.
Finally, he emphasized that “surely this is not the time to swear or promise returns, but I know that I am leaving more punctured than when I arrived, because this club once again gave me a lesson in affection and gratitude, and because I know that in the Student dictionary the« dreams »,« struggle »and« belonging »COMMAND!”.
