    Rafael savages ex-Man United boss Louis van Gaal as ‘one of the WORST people’ he worked with

    ‘On the first day, he did not speak to me. On the second day, he said, “You can leave”: Rafael savages Louis van Gaal as ‘one of the WORST people’ he worked with as former Manchester United full-back reveals ‘s***’ dressing room culture under the Dutchman

    • Rafael da Silva feels Louis van Gaal is ‘one of the worst people’ he worked with
    • The ex-Manchester United full-back was told to leave on Van Gaal’s second day 
    • Rafael describes a ‘s***’ dressing room culture as players tuned Van Gaal out
    • Ryan Giggs tried to help Rafael but he was forced out under Van Gaal’s reign 

    Rafael da Silva insists Louis van Gaal is ‘one of the worst’ managers he has ever worked under as the former Manchester United full-back opened up on the ‘s***’ tenure of the Dutchman.

    Van Gaal was brought in by United as successor to David Moyes but Rafael, who feels no ill-will towards Moyes, was soon to learn he had no future under the Dutchman – and he was even shunned on the first day of training by Van Gaal.

    ‘I talk bad about some people, like Van Gaal. I don’t like Van Gaal,’ Rafael told the Athletic

    ‘When they said Van Gaal was the manager, a lot of friends called me. I could not believe it, as a lot of people told me he does not like Brazilians (because of their style of play). They told me, “The first thing he is going to do is take you out.” 

    ‘Actually, it was the second thing because on the first day, he did not speak to me. On the second day, he said, “You can leave.” I had not even trained and he said that. I could not believe it.’

    Rafael, a three-time Premier League champion under Sir Alex Ferguson, felt disrespected. 

    He recalled how at every meal time for the first team Van Gaal would interrupt with a speech.

    Rafael, who left Manchester United to join Lyon in 2015, revealed that Van Gaal is 'one of the worst people I have worked for' in his professional footballing career to date

    It was not welcomed by the squad in the eyes of Rafael and he believes it created a ‘s***’ culture that contributed to their demise in recent seasons. 

    ‘Every day, after breakfast, after lunch, or if we had dinner together, he would speak to everyone for 15 minutes about training, about what has happened, about everything, about life,’ Rafael explained. 

    ‘You know when you start to stop listening to what someone is saying, because they speak so much? He wanted to show he could speak. But it was every day! All the time! 

    ‘You need to wait for everybody to finish their food to leave, which is fine, OK. But then we watched him talk, for 15 minutes, with all due respect, about s***. That is the truth, man. It was s***. 

    ‘He didn’t care how people are, he just wanted to think about himself — “I am like this, you respect me, you do like I want.’ That’s how he speaks. Players get tired of this. You don’t need to speak all the time. If we talk (about culture), he changed everything.’

    Rafael, who joined Istanbul Basaksehir on a free transfer this summer, fought for his place under Van Gaal for one season before accepting his fate and leaving. 

    He joined Lyon in 2015 to end his seven-year stint with United. 

    Van Gaal would go on to last another season at Old Trafford before he himself was given the boot – despite winning the FA Cup against Crystal Palace at Wembley. It was the only piece of silverware the Dutchman won as United boss.

    The style of football and mood of the first team squad had deteriorated and Van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho in the summer of 2016.
