New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal hopes to create greater unity within the squad by ordering his players to eat together every day after training. That means spaghetti all-round the table… what a great team bonding session!
According to a team report, it is now compulsory for the United stars to dine with the club’s youth players and coaching staff at Carrington at 1pm. The stricter guidelines came into effect this week before Van Gaal’s much-anticipated arrival at the training ground on Wednesday morning. Manchester United tickets for next season are already on sale, despite the club being weeks away from preseason.
The 62-year-old Dutchman spoke at the weekend about his plans to foster the kind of togetherness in the United squad that helped him take Holland to third place at the World Cup in Brazil. “I hope the group in Manchester will become like this one,” he said.
There were concerns that cliques had developed last season in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, and Van Gaal is determined that all his players are pulling in the same direction, particularly if they are to contest Manchester City in the Premiership race next season.
