Marcos Rojo, Manchester United defender was forced to leave a Dominican Republic hotel where a tourist mysteriously died.
Robert Bell Wallace, 67, was named as the fourth person to die on the Caribbean island in the last two months.
Wallace was staying at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana – where the footballer and his family had been staying this week.
Rojo was unaware of the shock deaths having been on a two-day fishing trip. He has now checked out of the hotel and is continuing his break elsewhere.
A source revealed told the Daily Mail that the footballer is just being cautious and doesn’t wish to take any chances.
American tourist Bell Wallace became sick and urinated blood after having a single whisky from his room’s minibar on April 11. He died in hospital three days later.
Three other American tourists were found dead in their rooms in another hotel on the Caribbean island at the end of May.
Dominican authorities said post-mortem examinations revealed all four tourists died of natural causes.
The families are now looking for answers.
