After Manchester United’s 3-0 loss to Arsenal last weekend, the players left for international duty. Louis van Gaal announced that he was not a fan of this.
The Dutch coach said that as the players were leaving, he didn’t have a chance to reform them following the loss.
Louis van Gaal continued by saying that his captain, Wayne Rooney, should play for England but that he hopes that he would not be risked as a starter, as the Three Lions have already qualified.
Well, Manchester United’s manager has got his wish. Wayne Rooney will not be featuring in either of England’s final Euro 2016 qualifiers, against Estonia and Lithuania.
The Englishman missed training on Tuesday and again yesterday, and has now been sent home with an ankle injury, ruling him out of the upcoming international fixtures.
The ankle injury was assessed as a knock, sustained in the Arsenal match, earlier in the week but is now deemed to be too serious for him to train.
Wayne Rooney is expected to be fit for next weekend’s trip to Everton so Louis van Gaal will be glad that his player will be receiving some extra rest days.
The Wembley crowd will still be able to get a glimpse of Rooney tomorrow, as he will be honoured with the golden boot trophy, which will be awarded to him by Sir Bobby Charlton.

LVG he’s a waste of time ., I don’t c anything special from him ; the only thing I c is MAN.UNITED going in the wrong direction..
As a MAN.UNITED fan, I thought LVG could come with something special but no it’s 0.00% there’s no difference when David Moyes was in charge..
Every1 player will look bad .., but the truth is LVG he’s not the wright manager 2 drive MAN. UNITED forward ..
I still do not know what is van gaal’s philosophy. He has too many fall outs with his players namely, nani van persie valdes herhandez rojo evans and many other players. He plays players in wrong positions and is not a good man manager.
Rooney a real Lemon for Man Utd. Should be benched.
