Marcos Rojo sends his best wishes to Ander Herrera after the Manchester United midfielder turned 26

Marcos Rojo took to social media to wish Ander Herrera a happy birthday after the Manchester United midfielder turned 26 on Friday.

The Spaniard celebrated his birthday on the same day that the Red Devils travelled to Aston Villa in the Premier League.

And the Argentina defender posted a picture of his Manchester United team-mate on his personal Instagram account, along with a message wishing him a happy birthday.

Rojo posted the picture above on the photo-sharing app and wrote: “Happy Birthday, Ander! You’re a great person and deserve the best. #MUFC”

Rojo only returned to pre-season training with United earlier this month after being given an extended summer holiday following his involvement in the Copa America with Argentina.
