Manchester United defender, Marcos Rojo has revealed that Van Gaal has a scary side to him in a recent interview with Fox Sports. But he also went on to hail Van Gaal and his management style.
Rojo who has been out with an injury was brought in by Van Gaal last season and even though he is yet to feature this season became a valuable member of Van Gaal’s team. When asked about Van Gaal’s management style he had a few words to say: “He has a really strong personality, but he is a great person. He has a bulldog face, but he is great guy. He’s scary at first, but when you get to know him and relate to him on daily basis, you get along. But only if you listen to him,” the 25-year-old told Fox Sports Argentina. “He listens to us, and even speaks a little bit of Spanish, so he always takes me to his office for a pep talk.” Rojo has always been supportive of Van Gaal and his philosophies even in the face of resistance but the Argentine described Van Gaal as ‘cara de perro’ meaning someone who hardly smiles but frowns a lot.
Manchester United take on Liverpool at the weekend but Marcos Rojo might still be left out of the squad and a player coming forward to praise Van Gaal right now might just be what the Dutchman needs
