Van Gaal delivers latest Man United injury update after Liverpool win
Louis van Gaal reveals that Marcos Rojo picked up an injury in training ahead of Liverpool clash
Louis van Gaal has revealed that a training injury ruled Marcos Rojo out of Sunday’s 3-0 win over Liverpool.
The United manager was forced to rotate his defensive line-up once again, with Phil Jones taking the Argentina international’s place in the starting line-up.
“I had to change at the last moment because Marcos was injured in training,” Van Gaal said before the game.
Goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin van Persie then wrapped up an impressive victory for Van Gaal’s side at Old Trafford.
And speaking after the game, Van Gaal said: “The last training session gave me a new injury with Marcos Rojo and it was unfortunate to change my line-up again.
“We gave unnecessary balls away today, that’s not good. I will ask the players tomorrow why. I’m very happy but the next match at Aston Villa is important. We have had difficulty in away matches.”
