Van Gaal: Luis Enrique was my Rooney at Barcelona


The former forward won back-to-back Liga titles and the Copa del Rey under the current Manchester United boss at Camp Nou

Louis van Gaal has heaped praise on Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique, comparing him to Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney as a player.

The former Spain international won back-to-back Liga titles and the Copa del Rey between 1997 and 1999 under the guidance of the Dutch coach at Camp Nou.

Van Gaal is now preparing his United side to face Luis Enrique’s treble-winning Barcelona in Saturday’s International Champions Cup clash in California and, speaking ahead of the game, he had nothing but the highest esteem for his opposite number.
