The Old Trafford club have struggled to deal with a long injury list this season, and the majority of the missing players are from the back line. Despite this, the Dutchman has refused to accept that January might be a good time to invest in some reinforcements to deal with the missing players.

Halfway through Monday’s match against Southampton, the 63-year-old had to move midfielder Michael Carrick in to a makeshift centre-back position. This has still not made the former Bayern Munich manager change his mind.

“When you have injuries you cannot solve the problem otherwise,” van Gaal told reporters who asked him about his transfer plans. “Do we have to buy players? No. We have more than enough.”

The Saints were by far the better team against the Red Devils, but they suffered for not finishing off their attacking moves. Now third in the Premier League, Man Utd will need to improve if they want to stay in the top four.
