Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has shown his support for Antonio Valencia.
Speaking ahead of Tuesday night’s friendly with San Jose Earthquakes at the Avaya Stadium, Van Gaal stated that newly signed right-back Darmian, was a back up to Valencia.
“We have brought Darmian for the second position behind Valencia and now already because of that injury (Paddy) McNair has to play there,” Van Gaal said.
The Dutchman also stated the club could be purchasing a striker very soon.
“It’s not the striker that the media has written,” Van Gaal revealed.
“But you have to wait and see. The transfer period is open until August 31 or September 2.”
