From the Argentinian Primera Division to the English Premier League, Marcos Rojo’s football career has seen steady progress. The Argentinian, like most professional footballers today, began playing football at a young age. Marcos Rojo started playing for his local team Estudiantes de La Plata as a teenager before rising to the club’s senior side in 2008.
In 2014 he joined the Red Devils with a deal worth 16 million pounds sterling. Rojo’s football trophies now include an FA Cup title, an EFL Cup, 1 FA Community Shield, and a UEFA Europa League trophy in 2017. Rojo has been appointed to the squad to represent Argentina at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Follow us as we explore the details of Marcos Rojo’s private life.
Marcos Rojo Wife and Girlfriend
Many of the world’s professional athletes are known for their escapades, and genetically blessed Marcos Rojo is one of them. Although he is married and often advertised on social media as a
family man, Rojo has been involved in several sordid scandals. His wife is named Eugenia Lusardo. She was born in 1991 and is a lingerie model. The couple has been married for some time and has two children together, both daughters. The youngest was born in November 2016.
From her modeling photos, which she found online, it is clear that Eugenia has a quite attractive body. However, it seems that Rojo was attracted to her for other reasons besides her physical characteristics. For one, Eugenia loves watching football. We took a trip to her Twitter page where we discovered many of her soccer-related postings. A few times when Rojo got into a controversial situation, Eugenia supported him.

One example is the Premier League game in December 2014, where Rojo’s team played against Stoke City. Although United won that game, there was controversy over who scored the winning goal.
The goal was counted in the name of Juan Mata, but it was a controversial decision as many others believed it was Rojo’s light touch of the head that scored the goal. To prove that her husband was the hero, Eugenia went to her Instagram page and published a photo showing Rojo’s head coming towards the ball just before the goal. She described the photo with the caption “There’s nothing more to say! Ha, ha, I love you.”
Since 2016, Rojo’s wife has gone silent on social media, especially Twitter. However, she runs a private Instagram account where she has about 50K, followers, and counts
Despite some infidelity scandals that have shaken her union, Eugenia seems to remain faithful to her husband. The first news of Rojo’s fraud to come to light was that of fitness trainer Sarah
Watson. According to reports, Rojo met Watson during a United Nations Christmas party, whereupon he had sex with her later that night in his hotel room. The reports also include details that her romp was interrupted that night by four of Rojo’s teammates.
Watson later revealed that Rojo contacted him repeatedly for a month after her one-night stand, desperately asking for another adventure. At his request, Rojo is said to have sent nude photos of himself to Watson, including one of his clean-shaven manhood. Watson said that she refused to get involved with him after she realized he had a family.
Unfortunately, the adult photos would be published on a well-known Argentinean Twitter site with 150 K followers. The site focuses on posting about footballers and their dirty escapades. A clear proof that the nude photos were those of Rojo was his tattoo.

Rojo’s encounter with Watson culminated in a court battle that took place after Watson said she turned down £100,000 offered by the star in return for her silence about her encounter. Rojo later tried to get a restraining order to prevent newspapers from linking his name to the story and accused Watson of blackmail. The restraining order was later lifted in May 2015, but the media was prohibited from publishing Rojo’s photos. Rojo was also ordered by a court to pay Watson’s legal fees of £50,000.
In another embezzlement scandal, photos appeared in March 2016 showing Rojo kissing a certain 19- year-old PR woman named Chabeli Trinidad Banchero. His wife Eugenia, however, seemed unimpressed by the news when she went to Instagram about two months later to publish a baby-scan photo announcing that she would welcome another baby with her husband Rojo.
