Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has declared that his game has improved working with manager Louis van Gaal.
The England international defender explained that the Dutchman’s training sessions could be quite repetitive.
And Smalling attributed these sessions with helping to bring about his dramatic improvement in form this season, report the Manchester Evening News.
He said: “We work hard and tirelessly on the training ground with our tactics, we do 11 versus 11s a lot so we know our positions and our roles down to a tee.
“The repetition has really improved my game and a lot of the other players as well.”
