David de Gea DROPPED For Manchester United Season Opener Against Tottenham
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has no injury problems to contend with ahead of Tottenham’s visit in the Barclays Premier League opener on Saturday. However, Van Gaal admitted he has a decision to make over who starts in goal as David De Gea will not play and Marcos Rojo and Bastian Schweinsteiger are unlikely to be in his first XI…
“We have no injuries,” van Gaal told MUTV. “It’s unbelievable! But it’s not possible for Rojo to be match fit as he was the last player to come back.’ “Schweinsteiger came also at the last moment out of his holidays so I don’t think he is fit enough.We have to build the fitness he needs.”
The boss is not certain De Gea is in the right frame of mind to start so new recruit Sergio Romero is in contention to keep goal although Sam Johnstone played plenty of minutes on Tour 2015 presented by Aon.
“It is not easy for David De Gea to manage his situation now,” van Gaal admitted at the pre-match press conference. “You know that we have problems with De Gea. He shall not play, so I don’t have any concerns [about him this weekend]
