Player power

It appears Louis van Gaal can’t win when it comes to United. The Dutchman was called into question initially when the change from the failings of David Moyes was slow, and now that things are different it appears he’s got other problems on his hands.

If he thought the closing of the transfer window would bring a reprieve he was totally and utterly wrong, with it claimed he’s facing a players revolt due to his training regime.

It’s not quite the French Revolution, but The Sun say certain team members are unhappy that all fun and banter has been removed from proceedings at the club’s Carrington training complex, and that a delegation of players told him as much.

Van Gaal admission

If that’s not enough Van Gaal himself admitted last night that he expects his side to finish second or third in the Premier League this year.

Speaking at a fan event, the United boss also reiterated his expectation that Ryan Giggs will succeed him as manager, but the main focus has obviously shifted to his thoughts on potential domestic glory.

The 64-year-old did confirm he expected his side to be able to compete in all of the cup competitions they’re involved in, so that’s something.

Mendes' Real fallout

Lastly, there’s more fallout to be witnessed from David de Gea’s failed summer transfer to Real Madrid. Reports from Spain, namely El Confidencial, say that De Gea’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is no longer on good terms with Los Blancos.

According to the report in question, Mendes blames Florentino Perez and his associates for the breakdown in De Gea’s move to Real. Does it have anything to do with him not getting a juicy slice of lucrative transfer pie?
