Arjen Robben To Ease Manchester United Injury Concerns Says Louis Van Gaal

The Dutchman will use his work with the winger to eradicate injuries at Old Trafford.

Since taking over as Manchester United manager in the summer Louis van Gaal has had to deal with several injury problems, but he has a plan as to how to stop it from continuing.

Van Gaal has been forced to call up youth team defenders Paddy McNair and Tom Thorpe to his squad to face West Ham United in the Premier League with Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling all injured.

The 63-year-old also put new £27m signing Luke Shaw on a personal fitness regime upon his arrival as he believed the left-back lacked the required levels to play for the club.

Van Gaal is clearly annoyed by the problems his players are currently suffering, but is getting ready to use his previous work with Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben to help eradicate the problem.

“I have been told [about the injury problems] and now they are confirming [it],” the Dutchman was quoted by the Guardian.

“But I have good hopes that we shall improve in that matter because normally I don’t have any injuries.

“As a good example, for a player who was many times injured – Robben – he was never injured [during my reign].”

It has been a difficult start to life at Old Trafford for van Gaal so far, with disappointing defeats to Swansea City and Leicester City in the league and MK Dons in the Capital One Cup.
