Man United’s Louis van Gaal has ‘no problem’ with Wilfried Zaha

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal insists he has no problem with Red Devils winger Wilfried Zaha

Louis van Gaal has insisted that he has no problem with Manchester United forward Wilfried Zaha.

The England international hasn’t featured under Van Gaal, prompting reports that there could be a rift between the manager and winger.

However, Van Gaal, who signed a three-year deal at Old Trafford in May, denied he had an issue with Zaha, who reportedly clashed with ex-boss David Moyes.

“I have a lot of players who can play in the strikers’ positions. I have already said that our selection is not in balance. I can put six strikers in,” Van Gaal said.

“So maybe next time I will put Zaha in because he is working hard. He is doing all the things I require or demand, so there is no problem.”

Zaha, who joined United from Crystal Palace in 2013, spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City, failing to score in 11 appearances.
