"They are strange situations for them because they are training but they know they can't play in official matches," the Uruguay international told Barca TV. It's complicated for them, but they knew that when they came here, they knew they would have to wait until January.

If it wasn't for the fact that admitting he's wrong isn't really something Van Gaal does, he might even reflect that maybe, just maybe, he was wrong back in 2000.
