'VAN GAAL IS DESTROYING UNITED'
Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov has taken a swipe at Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal, saying he is destroying the Red Devils and Pedro shouldn't seal a move to Old Trafford.
It's not the first time the Bulgarian has taken a dig at his former boss Van Gaal, with the pair having worked together at the Nou Camp before he (Stoichkov) was sold by the Dutch boss in 1998.
"I would never be under the orders of Van Gaal," Stoichkov has told Onda Cero. "He's mediocre. He destroyed Barca and is destroying Man Utd.
"With what he has done to goalkeeper [Victor] Valdes he has shown he is a bad person. Hopefully Pedro listens to me and doesn't leave."
Manchester United sealed three points on Saturday as they beat Tottenham 1-0 at Old Trafford and play Aston Villa on Friday night at Villa Park in their second fixture of the 2015-16 season.
