Cape Town - Manchester United target Marcos Rojo is “subject to strong disciplinary measures” after the player attempts to force through a move.
Sporting Lisbon have disciplined Marcos Rojo for his conduct following a bid from Manchester United according to the Guardian.
Sporting’s president, Bruno de Carvalho, has confirmed that Rojo is “subject to strong disciplinary measures” following United's bid for the defender.
“They will not play next weekend. This will take as long as it takes. If something doesn’t change, you’re going to end up with the players seeing out their contracts.
“They can watch the game on television. On Saturday, against Academica, we will play to win and we will win. There is no player bigger than the club. I would not give up the honour, the club’s history, for the attitudes of anyone.
“I give a piece of advice: don’t use the press, be professional. These two, in defence of our magnificent group, must be removed. They are subject to strong disciplinary measures. Both players have taken decisions that have caused sharp indiscipline at Sporting.
“A message: any player who does not follow the rules of the club can have illusions and pretensions, but with the way these two did things, the situation is just complicated.”
Following a bid from Manchester United, Rojo handed in a transfer request as well as refused to train with the club.
Rojo had an excellent World Cup with Argentina where he was one of the stand out players as the side finished as runners-up.
