Van Gaal on 'culture of England'
- From the section Football
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal expresses mixed feelings on life in England, on and off the pitch, ahead of his side's trip to Stoke on New Year's Day.
The Dutchman reiterates his disapproval of the festive fixture list and the impact it has on both players and performances, but says he understands that it is "the culture of England".
Van Gaal, however, is enjoying everyday life since his move to Manchester and says he has been surprised by the quality of the food and drink.
