Manchester United duo David De Gea and Marcos Rojo are all smiles after landing in Moscow on Tuesday night
Marcos Rojo and David De Gea look in high spirits after the Manchester United pair snapped a selfie in Moscow ahead of their Champions League clash.
The Red Devils made the long trip to the Russian city on Tuesday fresh from a resounding 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Rojo started the game at left-back and impressed with an assist for Ander Herrera’s opening goal of the win, whilst De Gea made a string of saves to deny the home side an avenue back into the game.
The Argentina international grabbed the United number one for a selfie after seemingly landing at their destination ahead of their Champions League group-stage clash against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night.
Rojo posted the above snap on Twitter and wrote: “Arrival in Russia”
Louis van Gaal’s side were 2-1 winners against Wolfsburg in their last Champions League game after a 2-1 loss to PSV Eindhoven on the opening day of the season.
