Sporting vow to take action against Rojo as defender attempts to force Man United move

first_img1 Manchester United target Marcos Rojo is facing disciplinary action from Sporting Lisbon for his ‘unprofessional’ attempts to seal a move away from the club.The Argentina full-back, understood to be the subject of a £16million United bid, has refused to train with Sporting and handed in a transfer request as he looks to force a summer exit.The Portuguese club’s president has warned the player and his fellow wantaway teammate Islam Slimani, however, that he will not bow to player pressure and has vowed to take action against both.Announcing Rojo and Slimani will not play in the club’s league opener against Academica on Saturday, a bullish De Carvalho said: “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,” he added, in an interview with Sporting TV.“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.” Marcos Rojo [left] last_img read more
