Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has claimed that there is no one at Old Trafford who can score 20 goals a season. However, statistics show that there are actually three players who have regularly, reports the Daily Mirror.
Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, and Radamel Falcao have managed to hit the mark 12 times between them in their careers, showing the Dutchman to be wrong in his assertions. Eight of those times the trio have actually got 30 goals in a campaign.
The 63-year-old said on Friday, “We cannot deny that at this moment we don’t have a striker who scores 20 goals in the season.” He was trying to explain why the Red Devils have struggled to score freely this season despite having spent £150 million in the summer, largely on attacking talents.
With this being revealed it could lead to further pressure on the former Barcelona boss to improve the playing style of the Red Devils. He can surely no longer claim to be short of resources.
