Louis van Gaal has revealed his anger at Manchester United’s decision to drag the first-team squad to the USA for a pre-season tour.

The Red Devils will play Los Angeles Galaxy at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in California on Wednesday, as they begin their preparations for the new Premier League season.

After their match in Los Angeles, United will travel to Denver, Washington DC, Detroit and make a three-hour flight to Miami if they finish on top of the group.

Van Gaal is clearly not pleased with the schedule and when asked if the club’s commercial commitments were distracting, he replied: “More or less, yes because we have to prepare the season and when you have a lot of commercial activities also for the players, and you have to travel distances, you have to fly a lot, you have also jet lag, and that is not very positive for a good preparation.

“But the tour was already arranged so I have to adapt, I shall adapt.”

At his unveiling, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager said: “Within two days I know already how important Manchester United is, but also how important the sponsors are and I have to work and prepare a team and I have to adapt to this big club. It will not be easy.”
