Marcos Rojo was clearly excited about turning 25 on Friday, as he took to social media to post a picture of himself counting down the hours to his birthday.

The Manchester United defender, who joined the Red Devils from Sporting Lisbon last summer, was relaxing at home with some friends on Thursday evening.

The centre-half shared the photo above on his Instagram account and wrote: “@juanitotora @juanquieto @nicototora / with my friends at home waiting for my birthday.”

Rojo has been a regular fixture in Manchester United’s rearguard this season since his summer transfer from Portugal.

The Argentina international has made 17 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils and has netted one goal since his £16m transfer.
