Marcos Rojo made the most of a day off from training as the Manchester United defender spent time with his young family.

The Argentina international almost cost the Red Devils three points at Vicarage Road after the 25-year-old centre-half brought down Watford striker Odion Ighalo.

Watford captain Troy Deeney dispatched the ensuing spot-kick after Netherlands international Memphis Depay had given the visitors a first-half lead.

However, Rojo’s blushes were spared after Bastian Schweinsteiger’s cross was bundled into the Watford net by Deeney.

But the South American wasn’t thinking about his near-fatal mistake as he relaxed with his wife and daughter on Sunday afternoon.

Rojo wrote on his Twitter account: “After a good victory, taking advantage of the day off! I love my family 😘

Rojo has profited from Luke Shaw’s leg break in recent weeks after making the left-back spot his own.

However, the Argentina defender was a first-half substitute as he replaced Ander Herrera at Vicarage Road.
