Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has risked angering manager Louis van Gaal after admitting that he is afraid of the Dutchman’s bulldog face, the Metro reports.
Van Gaal has garnered a reputation as one of the game’s most feared managers to work for, given his track record of falling out with at least one person at every club he’s managed, and has previously alienated the likes of Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez and Victor Valdes at Old Trafford.
A recent report also claimed that several members of the United first team have confronted van Gaal over his training methods, and Rojo has now admitted that he is afraid of the former Barcelona coach.
Rojo told Fox Sport Argentina: “He has a really strong personality, but he is a great person. He has a bulldog face, but he is great guy.
“He’s scary at first, but when you get to know him and relate to him on daily basis, you get along.But only if you listen to him!
“He listens to us, and even speaks a little bit of Spanish, so he always takes me to his office for a pep talk.
“The fact that he holds a bad relationship with South American player is just a feeling.
“I’ve been there with Antonio Valencia, Radamel Falcao, Angel Di Maria and he treated us all the same, he never treated us differently.”
