A fascinating inside into Van Gaal’s methods, courtesy of Scott at Republik of Mancunia, quoting Fellaini:
Football is about the brain, too, no? Van Gaal has brought that here. He tells us how important it is to read the game. When we have a meeting, he will ask why we did certain things, and then we get his opinion. He has that presence, when he talks, when he shouts. He shouts when he has to, but not much. The training field is most important to him. Whoever we are playing, all week he will say, ‘like that, like that, like that’ and we have to do it — we play 11 against 11 to prepare.
