“Herrera has trained today for the first time with us and Januzaj has also trained two training sessions with us,” said van Gaal at his pre-match press conference.
He added that both player don’t have match rhythm yet. He said Januzaj was ill and you have to recover from your illness, not from your tiredness. Sometime it’s worse to recover from illness.
