Calls for ban for Marcos Rojo as defender appears to stamp on Eden Hazard

It's been just over a week since Tyrone Mings was hit with a five-game ban for his stamp on Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Bournemouth full-back continues to deny that the stamp was intentional but the Football Association's dim view on that type of incident is clear for all to see as Ibrahimovic received a lesser suspension for his elbow on Mings in the moments immediately after the stamp.

And now Ibrahimovic's Manchester United teammate, Marcos Rojo, could be in similar hot water as fans are calling for retrospective action to be taken against the defender for what appears to be a stamp towards the end of United's FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Chelsea on Monday night.

Rojo didn't have a bad game for United by any means and didn't fall victim to Diego Costa's notorious tactics as referee Michael Oliver rightly saw nothing in a coming-together in the box.

But perhaps Rojo was lucky to escape punishment for an incident involving Blues' winger Eden Hazard at the very death.

After clipping Hazard's heels, Rojo's studs were driven into the Belgian international's midriff, which you can see below.

And from another angle...

Intent is all but impossible to comprehensively judge but the footage does seem to show the Argentine use downward momentum with his right foot.

And considering the suspension that Mings faced last week, calls were loud and abundant for Rojo to suffer a similar fate.
