Angry Van Gaal refuses to answer questions on De Gea

Louis Van Gaal has refused to answer questions on goalkeeper David De Gea, claiming the media have attempted to misconstrue his words.

Last week there was a furore about De Gea after the press reported that Van Gaal had said that his keeper said he didn’t want to play for United. Van Gaal insists that he did not say this instead suggesting that De Gea had simply said his head was not in the right place.

But with papers running with the story, it further strained the manager’s relationship with his goalkeeper.

Speaking today to assembled press ahead of United’s Champions League qualifier, Van Gaal angrily responded to questions as to whether De Gea would take any part in the team’s Champions League qualifier with Club Brugge, saying:

“The question is not a good question. I don’t answer that anymore.

“I have said before what my view is.”

Van Gaal is clearly riled up by the matter, saying earlier in the presser when asked about Juan Mata:

“Maybe you should ask the United board if you are the trainer coach of Manchester United?

“When I say something the media puts it into another context.

“I have seen that with my words on De Gea.”
