One Direction are in Louis Van Gaal's bad books

It's a good job Louis van Gaal doesn't want to do a José Mourinho and become best mates with One Direction.

It's unlikely the Manchester United boss will be asking for VIP tickets to one of their gigs any time soon as he's blamed the poor quality of pitches in the US on the four-piece.

Grass was laid over the astroturf following One Direction concert at CenturyLink Field, where United defeated Club America 1-0.

Speaking after United's win over Club America in the International Champions Cup, Van Gaal said post-match: "The pitch was not good. It was difficult. The first surface was artificial and it had grass over it. It was always moving. It's not easy. You can get injuries. It's a big concern.

"It was like that last season against Real Madrid in Michigan. It's like this in the USA. These pitches are used for different things.

Old Trafford is used for football only, not One Direction concerts. Here its used for entertainment things."

We all know how particular the Dutchman is after ripping up Carrington's training pitches when he arrived at the club...
