Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal pre-Everton: ‘Juan Mata to play in Ander Herrera’s place’ [Video]

Manchester United host Everton on Saturday, who were the side responsible for putting an end to David Moyes’ brief reign as Manchester United manager after beating United 2-0 lat April.

Still struggling with injuries – ‘no good news’ – Van Gaal will play Juan Mata in Ander Herrera’s place (rib injury), though he refused to confirm how he’ll accommodate for the absence of the suspended Rooney, nor who will deputize as captain.

The Iron Tulip also confirmed that Paddy McNair will play again, by default as much as anything, as his three first choice centre halves are out injured/suspended.

Van Gaal was also asked about the issue of black managers in football, but refused to be drawn on the matter, simply saying ‘that’s a political matter’.
