Meanwhile Louis van Gaal, despite having spent over £250million since he took over at Manchester United, admitted he still does not know whether his squad is capable of being a major force in the Champions League.
“He made me a better player“, Cocu said while addressing journalists in the pre-match press conference.
“Although I managed Ajax, I was also the national coach and when I came here, the people were very nice and they want a picture with me, so I don’t think that is bad”.
Ashley Young has outlined his desire to battle Marouane Fellaini for the starting striker’s role at Manchester United.
Manchester United have confirmed that captain Wayne Rooney will miss Tuesday’s Champions League game against PSV.
Depay and Anthony Martial linked early in the second half but Zoet saved his former team-mate’s low drive.
Tonight’s game will be United’s first since David Moyes was at the club and the fans themselves are looking forward to the game. They are part of us and I did that because it was like a way of saying “thank you” to them. “It’s a new experience for me in the Premier League”, he said.
The Rood-witten won the Dutch top-flight title last term while United finished fourth in the Premier League and had to go through a qualifying match to reach the group stage.
“I am sure his confidence will be sky high after that”.
Shaw, who had an injury-plagued first season at United but was getting back to his best form, fell to the floor in pain and players from both clubs gestured to the bench for medical assistance. He scored two goals when United defeated Club Brugge in their Champions League Playoff tie, but has not yet reached his full potential shown last season at PSV.
Depay has an unwavering belief in Van Gaal, who handed him his debut for Holland and then took him to the World Cup even though he was yet to star for PSV, and the feeling is mutual, it seems. I remember watching Cocu when he was a player.
