Dutch coach Raymond Verheijen says Man United’s training methods are “prehistoric”, expect more RVP injuries

165012893 1386425715001 ari origin06 arc 152 1326384979160 Dutch coach Raymond Verheijen says Man Uniteds training methods are prehistoric, expect more RVP injuries

Dutch coach Raymond Verheijen is a controversial character who has an impeccable CV but a slighty dodgier recent past.

Verheijen is known as one of the top coaches in the game, having been on the staff of Holland, Russia and South Korea, and having gone to three World Cups and three European Championships as a coach.

Verheijen has also lent his services to Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester City down the years, while he came to prominence in 2011 as Gary Speed’s assistant manager at Wales.

After Speed’s death, Verheijen put his hat in the ring describing it as “Gary’s wish”. That offended some people, and in February 2012 he resigned.

Back in his Wales tenure Verheijen likened England’s training methods to Jurassic Park, and on Saturday night he coined the same phrases in blistering attack on David Moyes’ Manchester United.

During an epic Twitter rant Verheijen took aim at Mark Lawrenson, Man United’s coaching staff, David Moyes, Sir Alex Ferguson and football journalists.
