"Van Gaal would bench me every time I scored a goal"

Januzaj does not have good memories of his time at Manchester United with Louis van Gaal. The current Real Sociedad player criticized the fact that the well-known coach sent him to the bench every time he completed a good game.

In a statement to 'Het Nieuwsblad', Adnan Januzaj recalled his time at Manchester United, of which he does not have very good memories. 

The Belgian striker returned to the bench every time he played a good game, as he said: "Every time I made a difference with an assist or a goal, I returned to the bench afterwards."

He said this after he was questioned about statements by Louis van Gaal, who said just the opposite: "Well, Louis van Gaal. I really shouldn't defend myself against him, the statistics say enough".

The Real Sociedad player added that the same thing was happening with Memphis Depay. "If he says he's given us enough chances, he's not telling the truth, it's that simple," Januzaj added. 

"Fortunately, there are many people at Manchester United who know how to appreciate me. Giggs is one of the people I owe the most in Manchester United. When I was still a player, he gave me advice and I also learned a lot from him as a coach. I'll always be grateful for that. It was a great show of appreciation. He's an example," said the Real player.
