Manchester United legend questions Louis van Gaal’s ambitions but wants to give him time
Former Manchester United player Paul Scholes again slams current manager Louis van Gaal for his lack of ambition and also claiming that the team is looking worse even after spending so much in transfer window.
The Reds legend slammed Louis Van Gaal for being really “happy to be fourth” and his unwillingness to aim higher despite a summer spree where they spent nearly 150-million pounds.
He said, “No. He looks really happy to be fourth but this is a club that needs to be challenging to win the league. He’s spent £150m.”
“They spent £70m last year under David Moyes as well, that’s £220m in 18 months and they look worse. He’s not obsessed with possession but it is a very possession based game and what we’ve been used to over the years is not what we are getting – and we probably won’t get that. It’s not great to watch but you have to say they are winning games.”
“Not finishing fourth is not good, but to me not challenging for the league is not good enough. But we have to give him time. They can’t keep on sacking managers.”
He also said that United should be patient with the Dutch manager and questions should be asked next season if they are unable to challenge the league title.
“Maybe the coach does need time to settle in too, but the one thing he has got is (Ryan Giggs, United’s assistant manager) to help him settle and get him used to what to expect from Liverpool and from Newcastle.
“I can probably forgive him for this season – he’s brought new players and they need time to settle in and so does he. But this time next year if they are not challenging for the league then something is wrong.”
