Paul Scholes criticises Louis Van Gaal
Former United player Paul Scholes has criticised Louis Van Gaal’s management of Manchester United so far, saying he has not seen enough improvement since the Dutch manager’s arrival.
According to ESPN, the midfielder was critical of United’s transfer window activity, saying: “the problem in defence should have been addressed in the summer. It was not as if Van Gaal was unaware that Phil Jones, Smalling and Jonny Evans were susceptible to injuries.”
The midfielder was also critical of Van Gaal’s record in comparison to David Moyes, his predecessor: “Louis Van Gaal talks about progress. I expected United to have a better record by this stage of the season. Under David Moyes last season had 17 points fomr their first 10 games. This time, having spent £150 million in the summer, they have 13 points from 10 games.
Many Manchester United fans will sympathise with Scholes’ views, and will hope that their side can turn things round against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
