Manchester United‘s Marcos Rojo was the arguably the most talked about player during their clash with Russian side Rostov.
Not for a great tackle, a great goal or anything, but because he decided to eat a banana in the middle of the clash.
Jose Mourinho was seen with the peel and the camera was soon locked on Rojo who carried on playing with a peeled banana in his hand.
United won the tie 1-0 but it was an extremely boring and lacklustre showing from both sides.
Considering the Manchester side were tipped to roll over Rostov, only being able to score one goal was telling of how the game went.
Fans on twitter actually tweeted about how boring the game was during the first half, and most were asleep when the half time whistle went!
Regardless, United are now into the pot for the next round and will still be considered favourites for the trophy.
Twitter reacts to Rojo’s love of banana’s
Marcos Rojo has been handed a banana to eat. Phil Jones has seen this and asked the bench if he can have a Curly Wurly and a comic.

Marcos Rojo requesting a banana midway through tonight's game has been the highlight of the match. Superb communication and execution.

Did anyone offer novelty bets on Marcos Rojo eating a banana during a game?

OK, that's something I've never seen before. Eating a banana while on the pitch. Rojo…

First burnt toast and now a banana. Rojo lives for creating food memes.
