Louis van Gaal gives his take on the Man United Christmas party
Louis van Gaal describes Manchester United's Christmas party as a 'fantastic' occasion
Louis van Gaal has described Manchester United’s Christmas party as a “fantastic” occasion.
The Red Devils gathered for some downtime last week as Van Gaal’s squad enjoyed the festive bash ahead of Monday’s trip to Southampton.
And the United boss was pleasantly surprised by how the evening unfolded.
“It [the party] was fantastic,” said Van Gaal.
“Usually, I don’t use words like this, but I think it showed the cohesion in our group from both the players and staff. My wife and I enjoyed it very much.
“The squad is very important, and that’s why the timing of our Christmas party was fantastic – it showed the togetherness in the squad. I think we are in a good position.”
United captain Wayne Rooney tweeted afterwards: “Great Christmas night out with all team, staff and partners. Really enjoyed it!”
