Ouch – Reds legend lays into LVG.
Manchester United legend Gary Neville has criticised Louis van Gaal’s work in the transfer market since he took over at Old Trafford.
Writing in his column for the Daily Telegraph, the ex-England right-back expressed concern at the amount of money the Dutchman has been spending, which is yet to bring a great deal of success on the pitch.
Van Gaal has brought in big-money signings like Angel Di Maria, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Anthony Martial, one of whom has already left, while Neville feels the fee for youngster Martial shows a ‘disorganisation’ in his transfer approach.
“Van Gaal can’t keep being abrupt with every journalist and broadcaster in press conferences, or telling them they know nothing, because ultimately he is talking to the fans, and the fans think a lot of the same things,” Neville said. “The fans are also asking: why did we leave De Gea out, why are we letting people go when we have no replacement?

“Why are we jumping on the last day of the transfer window for Anthony Martial, who was £36m with potentially £22m in add-ons? Van Gaal is highly methodical with his teams, but when it comes to his transfer activity it seems disorganised at best.”
He added: “Van Gaal is fortunate to be at a club with Manchester United’s traditions. If he were playing the football he’s playing and getting the results he’s getting, having spent the money he’s spent, at Bayern Munich or Barcelona, he would be in significant trouble.”
