Reason 27,374 why footballers should not be on social media.

He isn’t the first, and he won’t be the last, but Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo has made a right eejit of himself on Instagram.

The Argentinian posted a picture of the former Colombian drug-lord on Saturday, with the message that translates to: “Only those who went hungry with me and stood by me when I went through a bad time at some point in life will eat at my table”.


Escobar ran an infamous drug empire in Medellin during the 1980s and 90s and his gang were responsible for tens of thousands of deaths, before being killed by police in December 1993.

Many followers of Rojo on Instagram were quick to hit out at the defender.
