Louis van Gaal: Rooney returns but De Gea is a doubt

David de Gea picked up an injury against Arsenal in last weekend’s 1-1 draw and was replaced by Victor Valdes, who made his first team debut.

The Manchester United goalkeeper is still a doubt for the final-day of the 2014/15 campaign, but captain Wayne Rooney will return.

He [de Gea] trained today but only with our goalkeeper trainer [Frans Hoek]. He still has a little problem so I want to wait a day longer because I want him to play against Hull City. Rooney is available. He is captain, so he shall play.

Louis van Gaal also said he expects Spanish Dave to remain at Old Trafford next season.

Anything less than a win for Steve Bruce’s side will see Hull City relegated to the Championship after a hard fought Premier League campaign.
