Van Gaal dismisses reports 1

The Manager for Manchester United Louis Van Gaal, is unhappy with the media for publishing stories that are untrue. Gaal understands and accepts that criticism is part of managing a team. The reports this week suggest that United have contacted the Former Manager of Chelsea, Jose Mourinho.

However the Manager who is preparing for his United game against Chelsea, tried not to bother about the media and the stories.

“The last two months have been very difficult for my wife, my kids, my grandchildren and my friends to cope with,”

“For me too, but I can cope. In the Netherlands they know I am too arrogant to doubt myself, but I also know that such a nonsense is being created about me.

“I do not believe that there is already a relationship between Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.”

Gaal also quashed claims that he had hired security for his wife to keep her safe. Gaal said it was also untrue that he had hired security for his wife in the face of increasing opinions from fans.

He said “It is logical when you have lost four matches in a row, people are bound to be doubting,”

“I criticise the media for inventing stories.

“I never hired security. Never ever. And I am walking on the streets without security and all the people I meet are very positive.”

He said “If you look at the selection now to the one I took over there is no comparison,”

“When I came in there were eight or 10 players over the age of 30.

“I had to move some out, and people said I was wrong, but in the last 18 months players like Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic have retired. They are not playing football anymore.”
