Old Trafford manager is not entirely pleased with Argentine’s showing.
Man United boss Louis van Gaal is clearly something of a perfectionist and is appears for all Angel di Maria’s attacking verve there are still areas of his game that the Dutchman wants addressed according to the Daily Star.
Van Gaal watched his thump QPR to collect their first win of the season and £59.7m signing di Maria was arguably put in a Man of the Match display, but apparently he wasn’t without his flaws.
“When you have a part in three goals and make the first goal yourself, then he can’t have played bad,” said van Gaal of Di Maria.
“But he had a lot of unnecessary losses (of the ball) so we can do better, even Angel Di Maria.
“You can say it is impossible to do better when you prepare three goals and make one yourself.
“But I am a trainer and a coach and reading the game and there are two or three things we need to improve on as a team.”
Di Maria has already shown just what he is capable of and his inter-play with Wayne Rooney, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata on Sunday was a joy to behold and Louis van Gaal will hope that the victory over QPR kick-starts their campaign in earnest.
