Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney, has said that Manchester United players are fighting for their manager, Louis Van Gaal . . .
Rooney declared on Thursday that he and his team-mates are “fighting” to save the job of embattled manager Louis van Gaal.
Scathing British media reports claim Van Gaal is on the brink of sack after a run of six games without victory and he stormed out of his weekly press conference on Wednesday in the aftermath of the criticisms.
However, good news came to me that despite the swirling rumors of discord over his methods within the United dressing room, Rooney says that the players are firmly behind their Dutch manager.
Wayne Rooney spoke to Sky Sports, thus:
“We’re fighting for the manager and trying to get results to turn this around.
You have a lot of people talking about things they believe are happening, when in reality the people writing that stuff don’t know anything that’s happening.
We all have families and sometimes things get written, which is not nice for your family to see.
It’s tough, but it’s part of football and part of being a footballer. It’s not nice when you’re getting criticism every week.
It’s tough for the players to deal with. We hurt. We’re proud people and proud to play for Manchester United”

I felt very good after skipper Rooney’s show of support for the flying Dutchman.
In the aftermath of all these shenanigans by the British Press, Van Gaal himself has admitted that victory for Man Utd at Stoke on Boxing Day is now imperative.
Shame on the British press.
Up Man U!
