De Gea and Fletcher Come WIth Praise Of Van Gaal

Manchester United stars David de Gea and Darren Fletcher has come out in praise of new manager Louis van Gaal by saying that the Dutchman has had a profound impact at the club. Van Gaal was appointed as the permanent replacement for David Moyes after the Scot was sacked with four matches remaining. It was after a disappointing season in which United not only failed to win any trophy, but also did not come close to challenging for those titles. Van Gaal has already had a lot of influence on the club as a whole.

He has tried to alter several things like formation, training areas, and transfer policy in the last few weeks of the pre-season. After having played different versions of the 4-4-2 formation for more than two decades, United will be adopting a unique 3-5-2 formation for the upcoming season. This is in addition to the number of high definition cameras that have been setup across the Carrington training ground. Van Gaal reportedly wants to monitor every moment of his players and this is said to have cost United in the region of £ 500,000. United, it seems, are ready to back the 62-year-old in the best possible way.

Fletcher and De Gea have also provided their backing to the manager, who has led the club to an unbeaten pre-season tour.

“Van Gaal demands a lot, but the players are responding to it and enjoying playing in the new system and playing under him. We’ve got a fantastic team spirit – we were talking about it last night amongst ourselves. We’re all close and we’re all pulling in the right direction and we all want the best for Manchester United. We’re disappointed with where we finished in the league last season and as a result of that Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, they all finished above of us,” said Fletcher.
