David De Gea early recovery empowers Van Gaal to have enough options for goalpost

Even though Manchester United is the only league side this year who has faced negative media coverage more than others and most of the times their performance proved it but few times it was done with deliberate intentions to let their moral down. Apart from media, United is also facing injuries to several key players including, noticeably Wayne Rooney, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, and Marcos Rojo and Van Gaal is finding it like bunch of salt over his wounds, but now there is some respite for the Dutchman after David De Gea’s early recovery from injury. According to Red Devils boss, 25-year-old Spanish is all set to return in the team within a week, and if it is true, it could mean a major morale boost for the side who has just sustained an emphatic 0-3 win over Shrewsbury in fifth round of FA Cup. If we look at United FA Cup’s journey they have been quite successful after missing their among top four space in the premier league table and Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, and Jesse Lingard, who scored in the last game, proved they would recoup their lost pride in the English topflight.

Talking about De Gea’s early recovery by the Midtjylland or Arsenal game this week, 64-year-old former Real Madrid boss said, “It was not so heavy the injury, so it is possible for Thursday but it is also possible against Arsenal. in my opinion is a big game because it’s a chance to qualify for the Champions League next season. But we have to win a lot of matches of course, it’s easily spoken about but doing it is different. But it is possible and then we’ll see. I think in March a lot of players are coming back and then we’ll have a full selection, and with our full selection we were first in the Premier League.”

Adding about the course of last game and if it was enough for the remaining of the season, Van Gaal said, “At half-time we were a wee bit disappointed but it’s hard to be critical because you’re playing against some unbelievable quality. I’m not going to take anything away from my players, you have to put your hand up and say they were outrageous at times. That’s what that kind of money buys you.

“We’ll be disappointed when we have seen the opportunities back that we haven’t scored. I’m determined I’m not going to be critical of the players because we came up against some fantastic quality. The players can walk away with their heads held high because they gave us everything they had.”
