In a declaration that would surely rattle many associated with Manchester United, Wayne Rooney has named Louis Van Gaal as the best coach he has worked with.
Speaking to De Telegraaf, Rooney, a former Man U and England captain who played for years under the revered Sir Alex Ferguson, saying: “Van Gaal is by far the best coach I have worked with – one hundred percent.
“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.”
Further, the man who now plies his trade in the United States with DC United said of Van Gaal, who lasted just two seasons at United, with limited success: “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.”
