Rumour: Wayne Rooney does not want Louis Van Gaal to manage Manchester United
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is reportedly unhappy with Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal as a managerial candidate.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is reportedly unhappy with Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal being considered to take over the reins of the Red Devils from interim manager Ryan Giggs and is hoping the club’s top brass overlook him for the job according to The Metro.
The Dutchman, who was previously linked to Tottenham Hotspur, has emerged as the favorite to take Manchester United manager’s job when he steps down from his post as the Netherlands manager after the World Cup.
Van Gaal’s links to Manchester United has not gone down well with their star player Wayne Rooney who thinks that the 62-year-olds managerial methods are too unorthodox.
British newspaper The Daily Mail has stated that Rooney, who is thought to have a strong pull over the affairs at Old Trafford after signing a bumper new deal a few months ago thinks that Van Gaal will treat him like any other player and will not offer him the captain’s armband.
Rooney’s fears are not unjustified as Van Gaal has a reputation for developing tense relationships with his players and was the main cause of Luca Toni’s departure from Bayern Munich.
