Louis Van Gaal blamed for Rooney injury

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal worsened Wayne Rooney’s latest injury, it is claimed.

Rooney, 30, has been out with a knee injury since mid-February.

The Telegraph says Rooney may have worsened his injury by not immediately coming off against Sunderland last month.

Rooney reportedly asked to withdraw when hurt 65 minutes into the match.

But, with the score 1-1 at the time, Van Gaal asked the striker to complete the 90 minutes – only for David De Gea to concede a late goal.
