Manchester defender Marcos Rojo has mentioned that club manager Louis van Gaal looks like a ‘Bull Dog’

Louis van Gaal is known for his strict training methods and style of play, while reports earlier this week have claimed that United’s senior players have spoken to the Dutchman about the strict regime currently in place at Old Trafford. The United players lead by Rooney and Carrick confronted Van Gaal.

Marcos Rojo, Has not yet appeared for Manchester United this season. He had failed to show for the club’s pre-season tour of the United States due to passport issues, was asked about Van Gaal’s style of management during the international break with Argentina.

Rojo speaking ti Argentine media said: “He has a really strong personality, but he is a great person. He has a bulldog face, but he is a great guy. He’s scary at first, but when you get to know him and relate to him on a 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.”
Rojo used the term ‘cara de Perro’ to describe Van Gaal, a phrase used in Argentina for someone who rarely smiles and is usually frowning.

Former United striker Diego Forlan had claimed that Van Gaal “has never been a fan of South American players” but Rojo insists he has never been badly treated by the Dutchman.

Rojo added: “The fact that he holds a bad relationship with the 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. 

“Maybe because of his [poor] relationship with Roman [Riquelme] or with Angel leaving, some people got the wrong idea, but he treats us all the same. He is a great person and makes no differences between Europeans and South Americans.”
