Van Gaal Denies Humiliating Falcao

Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal, insists he was not trying to humiliate Radamel Falcao after the striker featured for the U21 side in the week.
 
 
The Colombian striker started for United's reserve side in their 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur and was substituted in the 72nd minute without scoring.
 
"I have read it was a humiliation," he told reporters.
 
"I do not think so. It is a professional attitude of the manager, the management, also the club and especially from the player.
 
"It is not only Falcao. Valdes and Rafael have also played. He has not reacted how the media say he has reacted."
 
Van Gaal added that players don't always perform the same ways as they do in another league, after Falcao has only bagged four goals this season.
 
"We are looking for the solution," he said.
 
"Sometimes players can give fantastic performances in one country but not in another. It would not be the first time and it won't be the last.
 
"At a club like Manchester United it is more difficult. He has competitors. He knows Wayne Rooney is playing there and scoring."
