Man United’s Marcos Rojo drug tested after bizarre banana incident

Bananas

Marcos Rojo received an energy boost last night during Manchester United’s win over FC Rostov in the Europa League.

While on the field of play, the defender ate a banana, sending Twitter into a frenzy.

Man United won the tie 2-1 on aggregate, advancing to the last eight of the competition. They will find out their opponents on Friday morning.

Drug test

Speaking to a reporter after the match, Rojo confirmed he was drug tested by UEFA officials.

According to the Argentine it was a ‘random’ drug test. But given the events that transpired on the pitch, it probably wasn’t a complete coincidence that Rojo was once of the players selected for a test.

Fortunately for Rojo, excessive levels of potassium are permissible.
