Manchester United fans, happy Monday!

OK, we’ll admit, there’s not much to get excited about on a Monday morning. However, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing at all that can improve your mood.

If you’re a football-hungry hound - yes, we just said that - you’ll likely be looking for the next batch of breaking news. As luck would have it we’ve got it. Scroll down, or watch the video above, for more.

Van Gaal 'sick' of Rooney questions

You ask Louis van Gaal most things and you’ll probably get an honest, if not strange answer, but don’t quiz him on Wayne Rooney.

The Manchester United boss admitted after the goalless draw with Manchester City at the weekend that he was ‘sick’ of taking questions on the worrying form of his captain, despite the fact Rooney once again failed to make much of an impression at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal said he wouldn’t be providing any more answers on his striker, but surely even he’s beginning to get concerned.

Fans backlash

Well, even if he isn’t fans certainly are. The United faithful voiced their concerns on Twitter, with a number of supporters pointing out that Rooney’s stats from this season are less than savoury.

It’s not good news regardless of how you look, but there’s hope in the form of young Anthony Martial. That’s something, we suppose.

Van Gaal on Depay

Lastly, Van Gaal has hailed the professionalism of Memphis Depay and Daley Blind following his decision not to start the pair for the Manchester derby.

Depay has yet to live up to the hype surrounding his abilities in England, but Van Gaal inferred that this was nothing to do with why he was omitted from the starting XI yesterday.

The Dutchman simply said that others were doing very well so there was no reason to change things.
