Louis van Gaal blasts 'stupid' Marouane Fellaini after being sent off against Hull City

FOOTBALL By Mirror | May 25th 2015

Louis van Gaal accused Marouane Fellaini of ‘unbelievable stupidity’ as the Manchester United midfielder ruled himself out of next season’s first three Premier League games when he was red-carded for a horror tackle at Hull.

Fellaini had only arrived as a sub 18 minutes earlier when he directed his studs into the thigh of Paul McShane and earned a straight red from ref Lee Probert in a 0-0 draw which saw Hull relegated.

And United boss Van Gaal said: “Fellaini doesn’t want to do that. For him it is unbelievably stupid because next season he starts in the stand, and then in preparation games he starts as a sub.

“It is not so good for him personally. I don’t know if it is a red card because I haven’t seen it, but I saw that it took seven minutes until their player was capable of standing up, so it shall be the worst tackle.”

Van Gaal insists he has spoken to several United players about their futures – and is believed to have told Radamel Falcao that they will not be making his loan move permanent.

But as the Dutchman heads off on holiday, he admits he is unsure how United’s transfer plans will work out – with David De Gea, Robin Van Persie and Angel Di Maria all heavily linked with moves away from Old Trafford.

He said: “I have talked with everybody that I think I have to. The transfer period is a process. I know which players should go and which should come but you never know if they go or if they come because it will depend on a lot of aspects.

“I don’t say if Falcao will go today. Today is about the games and not the decisions we have made. You will hear it at the proper time and when Manchester United want.”
