This has to hurt. Pedro has revealed that Spanish teammate Victor Valdes, didn’t recommend life under Van Gaal.
Pedro was linked to United for much of the summer, but indecision from the Old Trafford enabled Chelsea to hijack and complete the switch.
Valdes talked about how great United is and the fans, but warned about the problems with Van Gaal, this is according to Pedro.
“He told me it was a very good club with great supporters and the only problem was with the coach,” Pedro told Marca.
“It is true that I do not like the treatment of my [Spain] team-mates, especially Victor, who has been a reference for me and is a model professional,” he added.
“I don’t think it’s fair, but that did not influence my decision [to join Chelsea].
“I just saw Man Utd wasn’t convinced to take the step of signing me, they were delaying a lot and I needed a team with which to start the new season. Chelsea acted more decisively.”
