Jose Mourinho has revealed Marcos Rojo ate a banana during Manchester United’s defeat of FC Rostov because he was TIRED. Defender Rojo was handed the potassium-rich fruit ready peeled by Ashley Young. The Argentine then scoffed the banana during the second half to up his fallen levels.
United avoided the banana skin by beating the Russians 1-0, thanks to Juan Mata’s goal. And manager Mourinho has explained that three games in a week had tired his star and he just needed perking up with the energy fruit.

Mourinho told BT Sport : “I was tired many times. I know about the body needing anything, and the player asked for a banana. The banana situation isn’t funny at all, we have to respect a player’s physical situation.

“It’s bad for us as all of the teams above us don’t have international football. They don’t know what fatigue is. We fight until the limits and that’s what we have to do.”
