Mata, Rooney and co. send a message to Van Gaal

by Sam Peoples

Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and other Manchester United players old and new sent their own best wishes following the appointment of Louis van Gaal.

Juan Mata has endured a turbulent start to his United career but under the stewardship of Van Gaal, the world is his oyster and everybody expects him to flourish next season.

As for Wayne Rooney, the jury is out as to whether he will flourish or flounder under the iron fist of Van Gaal but he’s insisted he is looking forward to the challenge.

Michael Carrick also said he was excited to see what the new season brought and Rio Ferdinand wished United well.

Further afield, two ex-United goalkeepers sent their own messages – Edwin van der Sar and Raymond van der Gouw.
