Manchester United defender Guillermo Varela has given a surprisingly candid interview to Uruguayan paper La Ovacion, in which he discusses life at Old Trafford.
Given that he’s only made two Premier League appearances for United to date, we’re yet to hear the Uruguayan speak in English, and he’s only given a handful of Spanish interviews to the club’s channel.
And he may be left waiting a while for his next appearance, if Louis van Gaal has a butcher’s at this interview.
Seemingly feeling safe in the cocoon of Uruguayan journalism and forgetting that the quotes would be translated in English, Varela describes his boss as having a ‘difficult personality that can be difficult to deal with.
There are rumours that he always has some kind of problem with South Americans. But to tell you the truth, I haven’t had any for the moment.
“The things I’ve had to talk to him about have been clear and stayed at that. He has a bit of a difficult personality to deal with and sometimes it isn’t easy for the players.
“That has been tough, because there are players who were accustomed to Ferguson. The truth is, we felt his departure a lot. There was a before and an after.”
