Van Gaal unimpressed by Rooney comments 

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is unhappy with comments from Wayne Rooney.

Van Gaal claimed on Friday that Rooney was wrong to say United are now playing with greater freedom.

He said: “I’m not agreeing with the remark of Wayne Rooney when he said that because it is only that they have more confidence.

“And it is especially so with Wayne Rooney, who is saying that because he has scored seven goals (in seven games).

“He can say that he is playing with more freedom because he has more confidence.”

“But you want to write in your paper that it’s because he gets another training session in another style, because Louis van Gaal gives more freedom – no, it is still the same.

“We train still the same way. It is not because of the change of attitude of Mr Louis van Gaal or another way of training. No.”

“I’m sorry to say that. We are always working hard and very professionally in the philosophy of Louis van Gaal.”

“And that is also for Jesse Lingard.”
