In 2009, he got promotion to the club’s main team, after signing his first professional contract. He spent three years with the club, making 43 appearances and scoring three goals for the team.
During his time at Estudiantes, Rojo won a Copa Libertadores and an Argentine Primera Division title. The defender spent most matches at left back and developed a reputation as a capable attacker, scoring his first goal in a 2–1 defeat against L.D.U. Quito in the 2010 Recopa Sudamericana.
In December 2010, Rojo signed a five-year contract with Spartak Moscow. His time in Moscow was as unsuccessful as it was short-lived, however, with the defender seeking new pastures within a year of his arrival.
In July 2012, Rojo moved from Spartak Moscow to Sporting Lisbon for £3.5 million and signed a four-year contract. On 13 August 2014, it was announced that Rojo was being disciplined by his club over his refusal to train after handing in a transfer request to force through a £16 million move to Manchester United. On 19 August 2014, an agreement to sell the player for €20 million was announced by both Sporting and the buying club, Manchester United. The deal was subject to a medical and personal terms.
Since 2011, Rojo has become a representative of the Argentina national team, appearing regularly. He was first capped on 9 February 2011 in a friendly match against Portugal. He also played in 2011 Copa América and 2014 World Cup qualifying.
In June 2014, Rojo was named in Argentina's squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He made his FIFA World Cup debut in Argentina's 2–1 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Estádio do Maracanã, playing the full match in defence. In the team's third group match, Rojo scored his first international goal during a 3–2 victory against Nigeria. The country reached the final before losing to Germany, and Rojo was the only Argentinean named in the Castrol Index Top 11 for the tournament.
