Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo says that he acted unprofessionally after missing training with the club last week.

Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo has apologised for his "unprofessional" behaviour at the club.

The 24-year-old old missed training last week in a bid to force through a move away from the Portuguese outfit, but he has since admitted that he made a mistake.

"It was all a misunderstanding, I was a hothead. I'm sorry for what happened because I feel that I was unprofessional," Rojo told the club's official TV station.

"My career depends on Sporting. Now I will try to correct the situation. At the time Sporting signed me, it was not a good time I can only thank Sporting."

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Rojo in recent weeks.
