Reports have been claiming that many of the Red Devils players have become disillusioned by the Dutchman’s training methods and his autocratic managerial style, with speculation that a number of senior players have spoken out against his methods.
Van Gaal was forced to address the rumours in his Friday press conference ahead of the return of the Premier League and denied that the United camp is unhappy with his coaching style.
However, surprisingly, the former Netherlands boss did admit that Carrick and Rooney confronted him over their worries that there was a lack of morale in the dressing room.
“Rooney and Carrick came to me and said the dressing room is flat – they told me to help me,” the 64-year-old confessed, as quoted by the Mirror.
