Van Gaal shocks Man Utd chiefs with demand training pitches be ripped up

New Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is unimpressed by the club's training facilities.

The Sun says Van Gaal has ordered Manchester United staff to rip up the club's Carrington training ground pitches as he rings the changes at the club.

He is keen for the Desso Grass-Master system to be installed ready for when he takes charge after managing Holland in this summer's World Cup finals.

The Dutchman's request has stunned the United hierarchy who believe their pitches are already pristine.
