How did he manage to spend six and a half years at the club WITHOUT a single red card to his name?
The 30-year-old centre-back, who joined the Premier League side from Sporting CP in the summer of 2014 for a reported fee of £16 million, made a total of 122 appearances under the likes of Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and most recently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And during that time, he earned a reputation for his no-nonsense and at times, reckless, decisions at the back.

A lunge on Wilfried Zaha in a 2016 clash at Selhurst Park is a challenge that he certainly wouldn't have gotten away with if VAR was on the scene - and a similar tackle on former Chelsea winger Willian was another lucky escape.
I think it is fair to say Rojo got away with several 'suspect' tackles in a Manchester United shirt and a compilation of those challenges have emerged on Twitter following his recent move to the Argentine Primera División.
How did he manage to get away with so many shockers?
Away from the bad tackles and perhaps one of Rojo's most iconic moments in a Manchester United shirt came in a 2019 Europa League clash against Kazak side FC Astana.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's fielded a young side for their first Europa League game of the season in what turned out to be a generally dull night at Old Trafford.
That being said, the ever-ambitious Rojo took it upon himself to try something different; a completely unnecessary rabona cross.
It's a shame he could only hit the ball straight at the opposition defender, who was standing mere meters in front of him
Thoughts on Rojo's time at Old Trafford? Will he be missed at all?
