Manchester United fans react to Marcos Rojo's performance against PSV on Twitter

Marcos Rojo came on for the injured Luke Shaw during the 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo returned to action last night for the side, but not in the circumstances he will have wanted to. 

The Argentine was forced to come off the bench following the horror injury suffered by Luke Shaw in the 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven last night, which led to Louis van Gaal reconfiguring his back line.

The United boss decided to break up a central defensive partnership that had proved pretty effective for much of the season so far. Daley Blind had partnered Chris Smalling but was operating on the left side after Rojo's introduction, with the substitute going to the heart of the defence. Judging by the reaction on twitter, not many agree with the decision made by van Gaal.

After Memphis Depay had given United the lead at the home of his old club, Hector Moreno - the player who made the challenge on Shaw which resulted in his injury - capitalised on some poor defending from the visitors at a corner shortly afterwards to equalise.

The winner was scored just before the hour mark when PSV's Luciano Narsingh managed to get in between both Rojo and Blind to head home and succumb Manchester United to defeat on their return to the group stage of the Champions League.

Here's how fans reacted to Rojo's performance in particular after he was introduced into the action and the odd tweet on the future of the side at centre back:
