Van Gaal gives out directions to Ashley Young

Ashley Young is in charge of the playlist in the Manchester United dressing room... but is under strict instruction from Louis van Gaal to play only a certain style of music.

Surprisingly, the 63-year-old told the winger to play funky house and house music.

Since Patrice Evra left for Juventus, Young has become the resident DJ at the club, but rather than be given a free reign, Van Gaal has told him what he can and can't play.
