Louis van Gaal Faces Man United Backlash As 'Players Become Unhappy With Pre-Match Routine'

Manchester United have a strict regime in place before matchdays but the boring, strict and repetitive approach is said to be not popular with the United players.

Louis van Gaal is facing a potential backlash from his Manchester United players after reports emerged that they might be unhappy with the pre-match routine.

It is just the latest report of unrest coming out of Old Trafford in recent weeks, including one unnamed player admitting that he is struggling to play to his potential under Van Gaal, report the Manchester Evening News.

Now the Daily Mail claim that the squad are fed up of their ritual of meeting the night before and strict curfew.

After eating tea at Carrington around 5pm, the players then leave for the Lowry and have to attend a series of meetings before toast and cereal at 10pm and bedtime half an hour later.

A source told the paper: "There’s no fun, no banter — just lots of meetings. The body language of the players isn’t right, and there’s no expression when they go out to play."

In August it was reported that senior players Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick had been to see Van Gaal with their concerns over the atmosphere in the dressing room.

While the manager expressed his concern at the time, he indicated that it would take 'good arguments' from the players to change up the routine.

"I have read there are a lot of meetings, but that’s the philosophy," he said.

"You have to analyse opponents, then you need a meeting to show that. Then you have to make a game plan, then you have to hold a meeting about the game plan.

"Then you have to practise, then we have to discuss with the players, on the pitch, how they feel. Then you have to evaluate a performance. Maybe we then have to change — and when they have good arguments, we change."
