Sprinter Usain Bolt has joked that he would not want to play for Manchester United under Louis van Gaal.
The world’s fastest man has made no secret of his desire to complete a trial at Man United in the past.
However, speaking at the Jamaican Sportsman of the Year awards, Bolt revealed that he had changed his mind following a number of meek performances from United under van Gaal.
“Looking at how van Gaal is, I don’t think I would ever want to be coached by him, so I think I will put that on pause until we get a new coach,” Bolt told reporters.
Bolt may be joking but he has summed up the current mood surrounding United. Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney reportedly went to van Gaal early on in the campaign and aired their reservations to the veteran Dutch coach regarding the team’s playing style.
United seem to have lost their identity under van Gaal – although a 1-0 win against Liverpool last time out was a big confidence booster. Entertaining football needs to be high on the agenda if van Gaal is to stay at Old Trafford.
