Louis van Gaal promises Manchester United players more ‘boring’ meetings

Louis van Gaal has told his Manchester United players to prepare themselves for more “boring” meetings because he thinks they are working.

Van Gaal was in just as defiant a mood on Saturday night as he was on the eve of his team’s morale-boosting 3-1 win over Liverpool.

The day after breaking into song mid-press conference to underline how he still had the support of his players and the fans, Van Gaal again poked fun at the stories of apparent unrest in the Old Trafford dressing room.

The United manager was at pains to point out that his team would not have taken the lead had they not planned and practiced the free-kick drill that led to Daley Blind’s opener.

“I have to say the meetings about the set plays and the sessions about the set plays have paid off,” he said. “So I am very happy because the first goal was the deciding goal.

“We have a lot of meetings, you know,” Van Gaal added with a grin.

David De Gea had made a successful return to action, Anthony Martial scored a stunning goal on his debut and United recorded a big win over their most bitter rivals.
