Louis van Gaal: Injury update on Wayne Rooney and David De Gea


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says goalkeeper David De Gea will be assessed on Saturday morning ahead of the away game against Hull City.

The Red Devils are almost certain to finish third in the Premier League unless they win by a large margin and Arsenal lose at home against West Bromwich Albion.

And the Dutchman insists he wants to start with his "strongest team" in order to respect Newcastle United who are in a fight with the Tigers to avoid relegation.

"We have the same approach as ever. We have to give our utmost best. We have to do that for the honesty of the league," van Gaal told MUTV.

"I have to play my strongest team because we have to give everything for all the other Premier League clubs and especially Newcastle United.

"We have won six points off Newcastle and we have to win six points off Hull, I think.

"He [David De Gea] has trained today but only with our goalkeeper trainer.

"He still has a little problem so I want to wait a day longer because I want him to play against Hull City.

"[Wayne] Rooney is available. He is the captain so I can say he shall play.

"Yes [Victor Valdes will start], this is not a problem, but I think De Gea is a better goalkeeper. It's also our last match of the season. I think you have to put out your strongest team because it's very important for Hull."
