Marcos Rojo was all smiles with his lingerie model wife Eugenia Lusardo at Manchester United’s charity ball on Sunday night.

Rojo’s other half unwittingly gave Red Devils supporters and Leicester City a hint that Rojo wouldn’t feature in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at King Power Stadium.

She posted a snap of the Argentina international cooking in the kitchen on Friday night, with the rest of the United squad tucked up in a hotel before their trip to the Foxes.

Rojo was not named in Louis van Gaal’s match-day squad as Bastian Schweinsteiger rescued a point for the Red Devils in a 1-1 draw with Leciester on Saturday evening.

The United centre-half posted the above photo and wrote the following caption: “#united4unicef con @eugelusardo”

Rojo has been deputising at left-back in recent months following Luke Shaw’s horror leg break.
