Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has claimed that it is up to the players to turn things around. Van Gaal was blamed following last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Sunderland, which has hindered the club’s hopes of claiming a Champions League spot.
“It’s a very good group of players. At times it’s been frustrating for us as we’ve under-performed.
“And actually the manager has taken a lot of stick for some performances. It’s down to us, we’re players and we have to perform,” Rooney said.
United are currently fifth in the Premier League table.
