Manchester United new boy Rojo could face prison sentence

Manchester United's Marcus Rojo is facing a court hearing for an alleged bottle attack on a neighbour in Argentina.

The incident took place in November 2010, and according to the Sunday People, prosecutors want him to face trial.

It has been reported that Rojo, who signed for United in a £16m deal this week, became involved in an incident with his neighbour, Juan Pablo Gomez, who was struck with a bottle.

It is alleged that the altercation took place in La Pata, Buenos Aires, when the Argentine international was celebrating his move from Estudiantes to Spartak Moscow and according to a medical report, the victim sustained damage to his "face, body and forearm".

Rojo was formally accused in October 2012. The defender is not in United's squad for today's clash away to Sunderland as he is yet to receive a work permit.
