Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has revealed that selling surplus players from the squad this season was the main reason behind the club’s success this season.

Louis van Gaal got rid of several big names this season. He sold the club’s record signing Angel Di Maria to PSG, sold an underperforming Robin van Persie and Luis Nani and also released on loan striker Radamel Falcao.

Manchester United got hold of some quality players like Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin. In short Louis van Gaal reconstructed the Manchester United squad according to his whims.

The Dutch manager believes that his policies regarding selling unwanted players were the key to United’s success this season. Manchester United are currently placed at the top of the table.

Speaking about the club’s success story, Van Gaal said: “You need luck, but the balance of the team is better than last season. Because of that we need to win our games.

“We shall improve every week, yes. I don’t see it every week, but see that we are better as a team and a selection.

“I rotate more now because I can. Last year in my opinion I didn’t have the balance.

“I have let 20 or 25 players go. So it’s a new team.”

Louis van Gaal added: “The manager has influence, but the players much more.

“They have to build up a structure in the dressing room and that’s really important.

“They have to accept that structure.

“That is why I do that every season – every season I shall do that – because I think we need that new stimulus.”

Despite spending more than £250m in the transfer market since taking over at Old Trafford last season, Louis van Gaal is adamant that he will continue to alter his squad in his bid to win trophies.

Manchester United snubbed rock bottom side Sunderland this week 3-0 to march ahead to the top of the table. Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Memphis Depay were on target in that game.
