Louis van Gaal on injuries, David De Gea's future and Hristo Stoichkov's comments


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says he has no injury worries for Friday's match against Aston Villa.

The Red Devils will be looking to build on their opening victory against Tottenham Hotspur when they take on Tim Sherwood's men tomorrow evening.

Goalkeeper David De Gea will again not be involved as his future remains unclear.

"It's still the same, no injuries – only illness for Phil Jones," van Gaal told MUTV.

"It's very sad, of course, but we'll have to wait and see how that shall recover.

"Rojo needs more time because he was the last one who came in. He is training double sessions sometimes. He is doing well but he needs more.

"[De Gea?] The transfer period is still open and he [De Gea] has still the same problem."

The Dutchman was heavily criticised by former Barcelona man Hristo Stoichkov who called him "mediocre" and someone who "destroys" clubs.

But van Gaal was not interested in replying to the Bulgarian's accusations.

"I always consider who is saying these things," he told reporters on Thursday.

"Stoichkov is one of the players I sent away [at Barcelona]. What is said is not always the truth. There are more players who speak highly of me."
