Man Utd players ‘fighting’ for Van Gaal, says Rooney

(Reuters) – Manchester United players are right behind under-fire manager Louis Van Gaal and are determined to get their season back on track, captain Wayne Rooney said.

The Dutchman, according to media reports, is facing the sack following United’s exit from the Champions League earlier this month amid a six-match winless run which has led to fan unrest.

“We are fighting for the manager and trying to get results to turn this around,” Rooney told Sky Sports on Thursday.

“You have a lot of people talking about things they believe are happening, when in reality the people writing that stuff don’t know anything that is happening.”
