Did you notice (that)?" Van Gaal said."When we can, we deal quickly."Ashley Young is the only absentee for the clash with Southampton on Sunday
He suffered a hamstring injury at Stoke on New Year's Day and will be out for four to six weeks, according to Van Gaal.Luke Shaw has recovered from his ankle problem and is therefore fit to face his old club.Daley Blind is also in line to return from the knee injury which has sidelined him for two months.Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman can see himself returning to Barcelona as manager one day, but the Dutchman's only focus right now is continuing Southampton's fine form.Life at the Nou Camp is rocky at the moment, with president Josep Maria Bartomeu announcing on Thursday that elections would be held early in a bid to lift the negative "tension" around the club.The term crisis is being bandied around and the Spanish press are reporting rising tensions between head coach Luis Enrique and some of his players, namely Lionel Messi.Koeman has been installed as the bookmakers' favourite to take over at Barca, thanks to his fine work at Saints and his history with the Catalan giants.Barcelona list the former defender amongst their "legends" after a highly-successful spell as a player at the Nou Camp - a place he can see himself returning to as manager, albeit not in the immediate future."At teams like Barcelona, if they lose games, there's always a lot of critics, rumours, speculation," Koeman said."I know because my whole life I'm linked to Barcelona, but it's not a time to talk about that, because I think it's not respectful to Southampton as a club, it is not respectful to the people of Barcelona."Asked if he could see himself managing the club one day, Koeman said: "Yes, but I had that [opportunity] sometimes and it never happened."Now I'm very happy to be here in Southampton and that's the most important [thing]."I started with a contract in Southampton and I like to respect to my contract and to the people."Koeman's goal now is to continue Southampton's remarkable campaign at Louis van Gaal's Manchester United.The Saints boss coached alongside his compatriot at Barcelona in the late nineties, but their relationship took a well-documented downward turn when they worked together at Ajax.That ill-feeling has now largely dissipated, although Koeman is desperate to get the better of his former mentor this weekend."It's nice [to beat him] because he is a very good coach," he said, having lost 2-1 to United last month."We had some problems in the past, but we shake hands and I hope he will do it on a good way with Man United and, of course, it's special to beat him, but I lost the last time."
