Red Devils boss issues warning to Rooney.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has called for Wayne Rooney to speak up if he is not happy with his role at the club, according to CaughtOffside.
The England international has been used in an unfamiliar midfield position instead of upfront this season, with many suggesting his talent is being wasted in a deeper role.
Still, van Gaal insists Rooney is happy to play there, saying he should inform him if he feels otherwise.
“He’s happy – otherwise he should come to me and say he’s not happy,” the Dutchman said.
“He never does. He’s always friendly to me. He wants to perform what I want – so that’s what I see.
“Of course, when the whole world is writing he has to be in the striker’s position, he will be thinking ‘maybe, hey’. He’s human.”
