Louis Van Gaal

Cam­bridge Uni­ted 0 Man­chester Uni­ted 0, Ab­bey Sta­dium, FA Cup Fourth Ro­und, Jan­uary 23, 2015. Louis van Gaal res­ted key play­ers Ju­an Ma­ta and Way­ne Roo­ney for the FA Cup Fourth Ro­und tie wi­th Cam­bridge Uni­ted at R Cost­ings Ab­bey Sta­dium; just like he did wi­th Mi­chael Car­rick and Robin van Per­sie in the third ro­und clash ag­ainst Yeovil Town.

Louis van Gaal paid the price for rest­ing Ju­an Ma­ta and Way­ne Roo­ney for the FA Cup Fourth Ro­und fix­ture ag­ainst Foot­ball Lea­gue Two min­nows Cam­bridge Uni­ted as Man­chester Uni­ted could on­ly man­age a me­diocre 0-0 draw wi­th Rich­ard Money´s men. But in­stead of tak­ing re­spons­ib­il­ity for his own choices, the 63-year-old Dutch man­ager blamed every­thing and every­one, in­clud­ing the pitch and ref­er­ee Chris Foy. Louis van Gaal: “Every as­pect of the mat­ch is ag­ainst us. We have to come here. The pitch is not so good and that can in­flu­ence the style. The op­pon­ent is al­ways giv­ing more than nor­mal. And then you can see the per­form­ance of the ref­er­ee.” Cam­bridge Uni­ted Te­am: Chris Dunn, Joshua Coulson, Rich­ard Tait, Greg Tay­lor, Mi­chael Nel­son, Tom Cham­pi­on, Ry­an Don­ald­son, Liam Hug­hes, Camer­on McGee­han, Sul­lay Kaikai, Tom El­li­ott. Sub­stitutes: Ry­an Bird, Ian Miller, Domin­ic Ball, Lu­ke Chad­wick, Har­ris­on Dunk, Rob­bie Simp­son, Will Nor­ris. Man­chester Uni­ted Te­am: Da­vid de Gea, Da­ley Bli­nd, An­tonio Va­lencia, Phil Jones, Mar­cos Rojo, Mi­chael Car­rick, An­gel Di Mar­ia, Mar­ou­ane Fel­laini, Ra­damel Fal­cao, Ad­nan Janu­zaj, Ja­mes Wil­son.
