MANCHESTER, England -- Stung by a surprise opening-day defeat and with injuries taking their toll, the honeymoon period for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United is definitely over. "Two weeks ago, I was the king of Manchester," Van Gaal said. "Now, I am the devil of Manchester." After opening the English Premier League season with a 2-1 home loss to Swansea, the pressure is already on United and its manager ahead of a trip to Sunderland on Sunday. However, Van Gaals list of absentees is growing, with Marcos Rojo -- signed on Wednesday for 20 million euros ($27 million) from Sporting Lisbon -- unavailable as the Argentina defender has yet to receive a work permit. Central midfielders Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick were all ruled out of contention by Van Gaal on Friday, along with wide midfielder Jesse Lingard. With Luke Shaw still out with a hamstring injury, Van Gaal cannot call on his three big summer signings -- Rojo, Herrera and Shaw -- who cost a combined $77 million. The only piece of good news for Van Gaal is that striker Robin van Persie is available this weekend after being given extra time off to recover from his exertions with the Netherlands at the World Cup in Brazil. Van Gaal is already pleading for patience from Uniteds fans, who saw the team slump to a seventh-place finish in May in a tumultuous season under David Moyes. "It shall be difficult in the first three months," Van Gaal said. "I have said that to (executive vice-chairman) Ed Woodward and (owners) the Glazer family. "I am hired to build up a team and that is a process, and that process needs time. You have to believe in the philosophy that we make again a big club but it needs time and its not an overnight job." Reacting to comments by former United midfielder Paul Scholes, who said this week he was "genuinely scared" about the clubs future, Van Gaal added: "I can imagine that fans are also scared. Because they have seen what happened last year and they have seen the first match (this season)." Rojo was presented as a United player Friday, with Van Gaal saying he had been "enchanted" by the left-sided defenders performances for Argentina during the World Cup. Argentina beat Van Gaals Netherlands in a penalty shootout in the semifinals. "My philosophy is that you have to buy only players who fit in the profile and I think Marcos fits in the profile as a left central defender but also as a wing back," Van Gaal said. "He played a fantastic world championship, so I am very pleased." Van Gaal had no news about any more incoming players at United before the transfer window shuts on Sept. 1, and refused to confirm or deny reports that England striker Danny Welbeck has been told he can leave the club. "I do not speak about that because thats private," Van Gaal said. Asics Uk Outlet . Boston is making its first appearance in the ALCS since 2008.

MIAMI -- LeBron James dispensed with his menacing black mask at the NBAs request and switched to a clear protective cover for the Miami Heats game Saturday night against the Orlando Magic. The black mask made its debut Thursday night in James first game since he broke his nose. He said he received word from league officials Friday that they wanted him to instead wear something that would allow opponents to see his face. "Its not a league rule, but its the leagues request that you dont wear the black one," James said before Saturdays game. "The reasons they told me didnt make sense to me, but Im just a player. I will abide by the request." James scored 20 points to help the Heat earn their seventh consecutive victory, 112-98. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver spoke Friday with Nick Arison, son of the team owner, about the matter. James said he didnt want to make a big issue of it. "Im good with the NBA," James said with a smile.dddddddddddd "I am not against the NBA. I had a request, and I fulfilled it." Teammate Dwyane Wade said he warned James the league would give the black mask a thumbs-down. "I told him after Thursdays game, You have fun, because it aint happening the next game," Wade said. "It was fun. A lot of attention, a lot of T-shirts are going to be made, a lot of Instagram posts. Now we move on to something else." James agreed that the black mask was a marketing success, with feedback he received universally positive. He said he may give the mask to charity so it can be auctioned off. "Everyone loved it," James said. "I got stuff, from You look very menacing, to You look like a superhero, to You look amazing. A little bit of everything. No one told me it was terrible." Not even league officials. "I think they loved it as well," James said. ' ' '
