Wayne Rooney thinks Louis van Gaal is the best coach he has ever worked with despite working under Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson for nine years.
The former England international won five Premier League titles and a Champions League under Ferguson at United, while he won just an FA Cup with Van Gaal.
“Van Gaal is by far the best coach I have worked with – one hundred per cent,” Rooney said.
“His tactical skills, his way of preparing and his attention to the finest of details, I found amazing. I admired that in him. I had never looked at stuff like that before.
“Van Gaal knows that the way he works is tough for players. I made him aware of that at the time and we talked about this very well together.
“I regret how it all ended, yet I know one thing for sure – I have learnt a lot from him and I am definitely going to use those lessons for when I am a manager.”
