LVG admits to Man Utd selection headaches for FA Cup final

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has admitted having selection headaches ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final against Crystal Palace.

The Dutch manager's troubles have further escalated due to the return of the likes of Matteo Darmian, Marcus Rojo, Morgan Schneiderlin and Marouane Fellaini to the first-team squad.

"Yeah, there are many players in contention such as Rojo, who is not injured anymore, and Darmian is not injured anymore," van Gaal told reporters in his press conference.

"You have filmed the training session and have seen a lot of fit players, which makes it more difficult for me as I have to disappoint a lot of players.

"We have a squad of 27 players, so I have to disappoint nine players in advance. Of course the injured players are included in that nine, but I have to disappoint a lot of players.

'Then I have to select the team and disappoint more players. Some players are thinking that they could play."
