The Red Devils captain got the playing group together prior to Sunday’s Premier League clash with Tottenham and it worked wonders as they bounced back from the FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Arsenal to secure a 3-0 victory.

“I was aware but I was not involved. It was the captain who was involved,” said van Gaal.

“I was very pleased.”
