Famous British Golfer Rory McIlroy has cast doubts over the abilities of the present Manchester United side under Louis van Gaal.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the four-time major-winning golfer Rory, who is a Manchester United fan, admitted he is not sure if Louis van Gaal is the right man for the job at Manchester United.

The Dutch manager has spent over £108m in new signings this summer, but they are already five points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City after four games. United won their first two matches somewhat unconvincingly and drew and lost their last two matches.

Rory was quoted: “I think the new signings will be good in time, but I’m not convinced LVG is the right man to lead us.

“I don’t know, it’s a hard one. Everyone is dropping points, and it looks like City might run away with the league.

“At least we’re back in Europe, so that’s a good thing.”

England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney too is going through a purple patch as his shooting boots are missing. He is yet to make an impact for the Red Devils.

On Rooney the world number 1 Golfer added: “Rooney did well for England at the weekend, so hopefully that will give him confidence when he returns to domestic football.

“A top-four finish is obviously likely, and hopefully we’ll challenge for the title, but we’ll see.”

Manchester United finished fourth last season in Louis van Gaal’s debut season. It was yet another trophyless season for the Red Devils. In this season, Van Gaal has made several changes into the squad bringing in players of his own choice. 

It will be interesting to see if United can actually emerge triumphant at the end of the season and Louis van Gaal can prove McIlroy wrong.
