The Red Devils boss appointed the 28-year-old at the beginning of the season and has confirmed that both he and goalkeeper David de Gea are the only two players in the squad members that will play on a regular basis.
“I don’t think any player is fixed,” Van Gaal said.
“Only the captain has more privileges but no other player has privileges I think. Every player knows that because you see how I manage my teams – my captain shall always play and normally the goalkeeper.”
Along with Rooney and De Gea, Juan Mata and 20-year-old defender Tyler Blackett are the only other two players to have started all four of United’s Premier League games so far this term.
