Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has revealed how he “always ended up kicking” his new teammate Alexis Sanchez and now he is happy that the Chilean plays alongside him.

Rojo has faced Alexis Sanchez a couple of times in the past against Arsenal as well as Chile. And the Argentine has shared what it was like while defending against the new United No 7.

While taking to Inside United, Rojo said: “I have faced him a number of times, playing either against Arsenal or Chile,

“We always seem to have fought on the pitch so it’s better we’re on the same side as we always ended up kicking each other.

“That’s my style and the way I play. I’ve been this way since I was a kid. I am very aggressive and emotional on the pitch. I’m a very typical South American player. We’re very aggressive. It is something in my blood. I’m not going to change.


“But Alexis is a great person, now I’ve got to know him. He is a fantastic player and I hope he brings his maximum level to United. He’s settling in well. He’s got a new house. In fact, it’s the one I had when I first arrived at United.”
