Wayne Rooney says that Manchester United should have stuck with Louis van Gaal, and believes the Dutchman came in for unfair stick.
An opinion that definitely isn’t motivated by Van Gaal keeping Rooney as a key player at Old Trafford, the former United forward says that Van Gaal kept standards high.
Had United chosen to stick with Van Gaal, Rooney believes things would have improved. Hmmmm.
“He [Van Gaal] got a lot of stick. I believe if he stayed it would have got better,” Rooney said in an interview with Talksport.
“He looked at all the small details not only off the pitch but on the pitch.
“I think the one thing he did was keep the standards with the players, he was demanding the best from you every day.
“Jose came in and last season in the league we struggled and weren’t consistent enough. Obviously in the cups United did well.”
