Burnley’s Keane takes swipe at Van Gaal

France World Cup stars get championship rings

Ahead of a meeting with childhood club Manchester United, Burnley’s Michael Keane has taken a swipe at former boss Louis van Gaal.

The Dutch philosopher was often accused of boring training methods and tedious meetings in between games before he was sacked after leading the Reds to FA Cup glory last season.

Now, one of the players he sold, has seemingly taken a jab at the Dutch tactician. 

Speaking about Sean Dyche's management style and training methods, the England international said: "We do a lot of back-four work and every eight or nine games, I'll have a debrief in the gaffer's office. Details, like he's seen a cross go over my head and I've turned too slowly to face the second ball. 

"He's obsessed with distances between defenders," Keane told the Sunday Times.

"He doesn't mind mistakes. As a young centre-half you can't be perfect straight away," continued Keane.

"I'm still learning. Even last week against [Romelu] Lukaku I made mistakes.

"[Dyche] shows you what you can do better but won't cane you in front of the lads. It all feels constructive. A bit different to Van Gaal."
