Rafael Da Silva, who was sold to Lyon in the summer, has responded to the criticism Louis van Gaal is facing for his style of football at Manchester United.

The popular former player has admitted that he didn’t enjoy playing for Van Gaal last season, when he was given the opportunity, and reminds the United manager that football is for the fans, and we want to be entertained.

To be honest I didn’t really enjoy to play when Van Gaal was there. Everyone is different. Results matter so if they can win the league it will be a different story. I like to enjoy myself, to try things and do stuff. Last year I wasn’t doing that. I watch them play and I’ve heard some things as well… But it’s hard. Football is for the fans. They want to see good football.
