Van Gaal BREAKS Man Utd Christmas tradition...

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says his players won't train on Christmas Day.

United would traditionally report to the Aon Training Complex for a light session while families around the country spend time with their loved ones at home. However, this year, the Dutchman has intervened to reward his players.

"I have changed that, I have given them free time and Christmas day with the family," the boss told MUTV on Friday. "We shall come together the next day here at our Aon Training Complex. Then we will have all of the meetings like we have done all season.

"I believe in a total human being so the environment is also important. I think they are more pleased to be at home with their wives and children. I hope they shall give everything to beat the opponent then."
