The £60m superstar is said to be currently living in a hotel with round the clock security following the incident, but had enough about him to turn down the manager’s offer of a rest for the FA Cup clash against Cambridge.
And though he expects the former Real Madrid man to feature in this weekend’s clash with West Ham, he has admitted that he will asses him late on.
“He was worried about his wife and child,” Van Gaal said.
“I have spoken with him and he wanted to play against Cambridge United and I played him.
“I decided in the past also that I never played a player in those circumstances because of the ‘total human being’ principle.
“But with him I had the feeling I had to give him the chance to play and I am happy I let him play because he played very well.
“And of course I have to decide on Sunday again. But when I have seen already his performance against Cambridge United, I don’t think I have any doubt.”
