Louis van Gaal upset by United's injury situation



Louis van Gaal upset by United's injury situation
Louis van Gaal is disappointed 7 of his United players are sidelined for the derby against City. The Dutchman remains bemused by the injury situation at Old Trafford with only Antonio Valencia who missed that Chelsea game available although Wayne Rooney will return from his 3-game suspension. He said: "As a coach, you’re always prepared and get used to a lot of injuries but I’m not used to this many. At those clubs I have trained, we have had very few injuries but now that I am here, it is the first time I always have lot of injuries. This week, we still have 7 injuries. I can hardly make a choice as there are so many unavailable. I’m disappointed but feel very sad for those who are injured again. We don’t know what we are doing wrong. We have to evaluate it ourselves, it is still going on and will take a lot of time. It is a disappointment but we can only play with 11 men against City, so it is not a big problem."

Van Gaal is keen to see his side make a fast start at the Etihad Stadium and wants a ruthless streak in attack. When asked about local bragging rights and how important it is to avoid fans turning up for work to face a ribbing from colleagues, the boss was adamant on the feeling of fans. He stated: "I hope that we can score out of our first chance because we have created a lot against Chelsea. We always didn’t score at those first chances in our Premier League games or else it would be more easy to win the game. When we lose a game, it’s a very bad week for the United fans, the players and also for me as manager. I can assure you of that."
