Watch: Strange Moment As Jose Mourinho Delivers Peeled Banana To Marcos Rojo Mid-Game

Watch: Strange Moment As Jose Mourinho Delivers Peeled Banana To Marcos Rojo Mid-Game
By Mikey Traynor

Those who tuned in for the first 70 minutes of Manchester United vs Rostov on Thursday evening would have been fully justified in questioning their priorities as one of the most uneventful games of football ever seen in the Europa League unfolded before our eyes.

Jose Mourinho's baffling substitutions, where he brought Marouane Fellaini on for the injured Paul Pogba and Phil Jones on to play left back for Daley Blind, had been the main talking point of the game up until Mata's goal, as United retreated and invited pressure from Rostov as the Old Trafford crowd yawned on.

But thankfully, Juan Mata gave us something to talk about as he started a counter-attack that resulted in a goal at the back post from a Mkhitaryan cross and an Ibrahimovic flick.

And it wasn't even the highlight of the game.

Ìnstead, that came when Jose Mourinho delivered a banana, via Ashley Young, to Marcos Rojo, who presumably needed a boost of energy. Rojo then ate the banana, in order to receive the nutritional benefits of said banana. Remarkable stuff.

Hopefully we're not looking at another pie-gate situation here, where Rojo and Jose had a little sum on a bet from left-field, although at least that would be newsworthy, unlike Thursday night's match.

Phil Jones was also handed an inhaler shortly after, a weird, weird night at Old Trafford.
