    Van Gaal urges patience over misfiring Di Maria

"Every player can have that kind of match -- Di Maria is not the only player who has suffered a bad day," Van Gaal told a news conference on Tuesday. "I have already explained that the higher rhythm of the Premier League is one of the most important aspects," Van Gaal added. "I think it counts for all the players …

    Southampton can still qualify for the Champions League but need to be more ruthless in front of goal to keep their European dream alive, manager Ronald Koeman said on Monday.

    Di Maria will get back to his best at United - Rooney

    Angel Di Maria is a great player and will rediscover his best form for Manchester United after enduring a difficult time of late, captain Wayne Rooney said. The 27-year-old Argentine has done little to justify the British record transfer fee of 59.7 million pounds ($92 million) United spent to recruit the flying winger from Real Madrid. Di Maria, who has scored three goals in 19 Premier League games this season, was taken off at halftime during United's 2-0 victory over Sunderland on Saturday …

    Wayne Rooney provided a timely reminder to Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal that he can be a prolific Premier League goalscorer after he netted a brace in a 2-0 win against Sunderland to help United go third. Van Gaal restored Rooney to an advanced position after trialing him in a number of positions across United's midfield -- to accommodate misfiring pair Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao -- in the last two months. On Friday, Van Gaal attributed United's struggles this season to …

Washington, Nov. 27 (ANI): An interview on Fox News Channel ended abruptly after an author accused the network of hyping the killing of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, attack and 'operating as a wing of the Republican Party'.

The charges were made by military historian Thomas Ricks, a veteran newspaper reporter and author of 'The General', who went on Fox News to discuss the fallout from the Sept. 11 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

According to the New York Daily News, four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault, which has since been determined to have been a terrorist attack.

Republicans have tried to hold President Barack Obama's 'feet to the fire' regarding what he may have known regarding the sequence of the deadly events, the report said.

Pressed on the Benghazi attack by host Jon Scott, Ricks said the attack had been turned into GOP 'hype'.

Challenged on this claim, he continued by saying that "I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party."

At this point, Scott very quickly and very awkwardly ended the conversation, the report added. (ANI)
