Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal gives injury update ahead of Hull City clash

Angry Louis van Gaal

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has said that both Radamel Falcao and Marcos Rojo will be part of the squad to face Hull City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has said that star striker Radamel Falcao is available for tomorrow’s Premier League clash against Hull City.

The Colombia international has been struggling with injuries in recent weeks and missed last weekend’s 2-1 win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

However, the 28-year-old returned to training last Sunday, and Van Gaal stated in his press conference on Friday that the AS Monaco-owned striker will feature against the Tigers at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Van Gaal has also confirmed that defender Marcos Rojo has recovered from his injuries and will be part of the 18-man matchday squad tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Dutchman has played down fears that defender Luke Shaw will be out for a long time, suggesting that the left-back will recover from his ankle ligament injury in the next few weeks.

Midfielder Daley Blind is a long-term absentee, and when asked about him, Van Gaal said: "I gave him a holiday and he came back on Monday. He has to exercise and practise every day as an injured player has to train more than the fit players."
