Louis van Gaal orders Antonio Valencia to take English lessons?

Despite the fact that he has been in the Premier League for eight years, a report claims that Louis van Gaal wants Antonio Valencia to improve his English.

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia has reportedly been instructed by his manager Louis van Gaal to undergo English lessons, despite the fact that he has lived in the country for eight years.

The Ecuadorian arrived in England with Wigan Athletic at the age of 20, but he has never conducted an interview in English.

Van Gaal, who took charge at Old Trafford in the summer, is eager for his entire squad to be fluent in English, and the Daily Mail claims that Valencia has been told to have one-to-one tuition.

The report added that new Argentine signings Angel di Maria and Marocs Rojo barely speak any English, so they will undergo intensive lessons, while Ander Herrera, Radamel Falcao and goalkeeper David de Gea will all take on intermediate classes.
