Louis van Gaal on the win, opts not to comment on Rooney's celebration


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was pleased with his side's response to last Monday's FA Cup exit.

The Red Devils produced one of their best performances of the season to ease past Tottenham Hotspur by 3-0.

The win keeps United in the top four as they move to just two points from rivals Manchester City.

"We can be very pleased with the performance, the result and our reaction to the defeat against Arsenal," van Gaal is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"When you get a blow like that from Arsenal you need a fantastic team spirit and individual spirit, and I saw that.

"When you score goals, your confidence raises and you can pass more quickly, but Tottenham wanted to play also and you always need two teams who want to play and you have more space to play football.

"Michael Carrick is not not my second captain for nothing. He is one of the best passes also, not only wide but also forward. We need midfielders who have that passing.

"When you can also score the second goal you have a big influence in the game."

Asked about Wayne Rooney's goal celebration, the Dutchman said: "In what a world we live that we are talking about such a thing?

"A newspaper paid a lot for a video and I am answering questions about that. What is this world, twisted? I don't want to answer questions about such things."
