Manchester United have been dealt yet another injury blow as Anthony Martial left Wembley on crutches on Tuesday night, after he suffered a knock to his left foot.
United had already lost Michael Carrick in this international break, after the England midfielder looked to have twisted his ankle against Spain last week but Martial’s absence could be a lot harder to absorb, given the Frenchman’s impact since joining from Monaco on deadline day.
Former Spain midfielder Xavi has admitted he thought Louis Van Gaal was an “idiot” when the Dutchman first arrived at the Nou Camp.
The former Barcelona great was given his chance to cement a place in the Catalan giants’ starting XI by the current Manchester United manager, but he revealed the start of Van Gaal’s adventure with the Blaugrana was far from auspicious.
David Beckham will return to Old Trafford on Saturday night, as he takes the field alongside a host of international stars to raise funds for UNICEF.
The former United midfielder said he’s excited at the prospect of playing on the turf he called home for so long and opened up about his relationship with the club.
David Beckham has suggested Cristiano Ronaldo should return to Manchester United on his hands and knees, if he ever decides to leave Real Madrid.
Over the last couple of weeks, the Portuguese has again been linked with a move back to Old Trafford after refusing to rule out he might leave Real Madrid in the future. Chelsea and PSG have also been billed as possible destinations but Beckham, who will play at Old Trafford on Saturday, believes there’s only one place Ronaldo should head to.
Manchester United have been dealt a serious injury blow after Michael Carrick was stretchered off the pitch just before the end of England’s friendly against Spain.
The United midfielder appeared to turn his ankle and could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after England manager Roy Hodgson hinted he might have suffered ligament damage.
Ander Herrera has praised Louis Van Gaal as a very demanding manager, adding his relationship with the Manchester United manager remains positive, even though the Spaniard has often been overlooked for selection.
Despite impressing when given the chance, Herrera has struggled to secure a spot in the starting XI given Van Gaal’s preference for adopting a system that includes two holding midfielders. However, the former Athletic Bilbao man said the Dutchman was the right man to take United onto the next level as the players clearly enjoy working with him.
Ander Herrera has heaped praise on David De Gea, describing his teammate as a “genius” and reiterating he was very happy to see him staying at Old Trafford last summer.
De Gea looked set to leave Manchester United before transfer deadline day, only for his proposed move to Real Madrid to collapse at the eleventh hour, leading to a heated confrontation between the two clubs, who blamed each other for the failure to reach an agreement.
Since arriving from Southampton in the summer, Morgan Schneiderlin has been one of Manchester United’s most consistent performers this season, justifying the fee Louis Van Gaal paid for him.
The Frenchman’s no-nonsense approach has injected a new lease of life into United’s midfield, which had for too long gone without a midfielder capable of winning possession with impressive regularity, even though he rarely grabs the headlines.
