Romero on Van Gaal

Sergio Romero might not be everyone’s cup of tea in goal, but he definitely appears to be Louis van Gaal’s.

The Dutchman signed the Argentina stopper in spite of the fact that he was used as Sampdoria’s backup goalkeeper last year, and it looks as though the 28-year-old might well be Manchester United’s first-choice this term.

As a result Romero has credited Van Gaal as having saved his career, admitting that he found it difficult to find a new club having been released by Sampdoria in the summer.

"I am very grateful to Van Gaal. I found it difficult to find a new club, even though I had played well at the World Cup and the Copa America," Romero said, as relayed by FourFourTwo.

"I do not have the feeling that I am the undisputed No.1 already, but I do feel a lot of support from the technical staff.

"It is very important for a goalkeeper to feel the support of the coach. You don't rotate goalkeepers. You either start or have to settle for a spot on the bench. There is no third option. And Van Gaal is giving me the confidence I need.

"Although I missed part of pre-season, I immediately started playing for the biggest club in the world, because that is what Manchester United are. Playing for United is like a dream come true and I hope it will not end any time soon."

There’s a fair few United fans who are indifferent towards the South American, who endured a torrid time in his last Premier League outing against Swansea City.

Carrick injury

Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson has claimed the injury sustained by Michael Carrick is ‘strange’, but he doesn’t think it’s that serious.

The England manager said he didn’t believe the complaint, picked up in the warm-up against San Marino, was a long-term problem, insisting it came out of nowhere.

Rooney on Fergie

And lastly Wayne Rooney has labelled Sir Alex Ferguson the greatest manager ever, in an interview with ITV Sport.

The former Everton man, speaking prior to England’s 6-0 win over San Marino, admitted to having had differences with Fergie, but also said he was the best.
