Trouble brewing at Old Trafford?
Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be ‘bemused’ at the approach of new manager Louis van Gaal in the transfer market, according to the Daily Mail.
The legendary Scot retired in 2013 after a glittering career at Old Trafford, where he became widely regarded as perhaps the best manager of all time after a tremendous period of success at the club.
Now an influential figure at board level, Ferguson is said to be privately concerned by the change in approach at United since van Gaal took over from David Moyes this summer, spending vast amounts of money on new players.
Traditionally a club that brought through young players and became self sustainable under Ferguson, the Red Devils now look to be taking a more gung-ho approach to building their team, which could be seen in some way as undermining the 72-year-old’s fine work.
While Ferguson rates van Gaal’s coaching ability, he is supposedly uncomfortable about the club’s big spending and ‘quick-fix’ solutions to improving the team.
