These were the best Marcos Rojo banana jokes after the Manchester United defender ate the piece of fruit midway through the second half of their Europa League round of 16 second leg clash with Russian side Rostov on Thursday night.

Scraping through to the next round and needing that little bit of extra energy, the player appeared to request the snack that was duly delivered by the home bench at Old Trafford via Ashley Young.

Although his manager José Mourinho later told BT Sport that “it is not to laugh at all”, here are the best of the Marcos Rojo banana jokes from Man Utd vs Rostov:

United are doing a relay race with a banana.

José Mourinho has just passed a banana to Ashley Young, who then passes it to Rojo. The Argentine is now having a snack. Amazing scenes.

Marcos Rojo has been handed a banana to eat. Phil Jones has seen this and asked the bench if he can have a Curly Wurly and a comic.

Marcos Rojo requesting a banana midway through tonight's game has been the highlight of the match. Superb communication and execution.

Can't blame Rojo, he's bored so he just decides to eat a banana.

Rojo will probably have to resign tomorrow because someone put a bet on him eating a banana on the pitch… pic.twitter.com/frbpH1Omcz

Passing a peeled banana around and then someone eats it. 😷

"The banana is in possession of Ashley Young. Where is the banana relay going next?"

What the fuck is this team?

Thought seeing Phil Jones taking corners was the craziest thing I'd ever seen in my life until Marcos Rojo ate a banana during the game

If you think a Banana is a big deal, wait till you see what the Barcelona players take during games.

Not saying this game has been boring but the banana is running Mata close for man of the match.

Credit to Phil Jones for actually passing the banana on to Rojo – must have been difficult for him pic.twitter.com/6Kdu9acQ2e

LVG would have passed the banana to Zlatan instruct him to pass it on to Herrera who would throw it back to Smalling to pass it back to Rojo

We'll always remember tonight and the night Rojo ate a banana.
