Manchester United manager saw his team defeating Major League Soccer team San Jose Earthquakes 3-1 in International Champions Cup.
Juan Mata, Memphis Depay and Andreas Pereira scored for the Red Devils.
But the manager is not happy with his new signing German superstar Bastian Schweinsteiger’s display.
Schweinsteiger was one of the 10 half time introductions by the Dutch manager and the World Cup winner could not impress his boss with his 45 minutes display.
“He was also bad. There was one highlight I think and that was Pereira,” the Dutchman said.
“Players can play bad and certainly when you have only three days or six days training sessions in your legs and you have to play 45 minutes.”
“Everybody can say that it’s easy to step in but it is not easy. I think the first match he played very well, and now he played bad. But that is also a process and certainly when you only have one week of training.”
Van Gaal was disappointed with Manchester United’s overall gameplay in the second half and insisted that his side gave away the ball too easily on many occasions.
“The first half I was satisfied. The players want and have performed what we want,” he added.
“The defensive organisation [was good] and they have created a lot of chances – 10 and they scored two goals, so I was satisfied. It can always be better, but I was satisfied.”
“In the second half, I think we played very badly, a lot of ball losses, unnecessary, and the only highlight was the goal from Pereira and I think we don’t give many chances away but we give possibilities away.”
“It was a threat always and that was not necessary. Our positions in midfield were not so good as in the first half.”
