first_imgLouis van Gaal is causing ‘mayhem’ at Manchester United with his handling of David De Gea.That’s the claim from former United star Gordon Hill as the Dutchman continues to sideline the Spanish goalkeeper amid speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.Van Gaal told journalists on Thursday that De Gea did not want to play in the opening game of the season last weekend and will not feature against Aston Villa tonight.Speaking on Extra Time, Hill claimed the ongoing saga risks upsetting the entire United squad and has urged Van Gaal to try and build bridges with De Gea.“The rick between them is getting bigger and bigger and eventually it has got to be sorted out,” said Hill, who made more than 100 appearances for the Red Devils.“We have always had a settled side at United at the start of the season, whether we have had good or bad results. Now we have got a situation where we he is causing mayhem because he wants the money for the player, Real Madrid are holding out, and De Gea is saying he doesn’t want to play.“It is becoming very unpleasant and the rest of the players will be thinking ‘what happens if all of sudden I am in that situation and he doesn’t want me?’“Like we have seen, if you upset Van Gaal, he is going to spit in your face and say ‘I’m in charge, you’re not going anywhere’. That doesn’t sit well. United aren’t like that.”last_img read more
