Van Persie warns Man Utd pals: Van Gaal and staff will be on top of you

Robin van Persie has warned Manchester United teammates that Louis van Gaal and his staff will be strictly hands-on. The Dutch striker admits Van Gaal's staff are constantly in contact with the players.

"The technical staff is continuously on top, not only during training, but also in the hotel. Or if we come together for a discussion.

"It's a different kind of approach than I was used to from previous coaches. But I like it very much. Very direct, but to get better. And I do not find it tiring, I just get the energy."
