Former Manchester United first team coach Rene Meulensteen gave a candid interview to Henry Winter of the Daily Telegraph where he has tore into Luis Van Gaal; describing him as a coach who talks to people like they're a 12-year-old.

Meulensteen said:

He will blow up at some point. That’s part of his make-up. Remember these words. If I’m speaking to you, I’m exchanging information over what I feel passionate about but I don’t lecture you. I’m not preaching to you. If you go and sit with Van Gaal, you’ll come out thinking ‘I’m 12 years old.

He summed his feelings towards the Man United manager pretty simply by adding 'he's not my cup of tea.' Meulensteen was also wary of the praise LVG got for the Netherlands' World Cup journey, citing the talent of the likes of Arjen Robben as the reason behind their semi-final achievement.

The ex-Fulham manager also discussed a number of the Man United players. He was full of praise for Wayne Rooney, who he described as 'honest, modest, humble;' adding 'He puts a shift in, works his bollocks off.'

Michael Carrick also comes in for praise, along with Robin Van Persie. Although Meulensteen thinks RVP needs to show more leadership on the field.

It's not all sunshine and rainbows however, with Meulensteen saying that he doesn't feel Fellaini is a United player due to his lack of skill in keeping the ball in circulation.
