Fan footage: Louis van Gaal gives Wayne Rooney an enormous hug!
There has been much debate over how Louis van Gaal will get on with Wayne Rooney at Manchester United.
Van Gaal is, of course, close to Robin van Persie, who captained his Holland side at the World Cup, and is likely to make him Manchester United captain as well.
Rooney meanwhile, was one of the few players to prosper under David Moyes, signing a new mega deal and asserting himself as one of Manchester United’s key players.
With Rooney tipped to become England captain there will be enormous pressure on the former Everton striker and if LVG can get the best out of him it will be of major benefit to Manchester United.
Footage has emerged from Manchester United’s training session ahead of their match against LA Galaxy this evening of Wayne Rooney coming close to scoring from a corner.
After the ball just goes wide, van Gaal gives Rooney an enormous hug – much to the delight of the Manchester United fans present…
