Definitive End for LVG? Van Gaal has been Accused of Suppressing the Natural Talent of New Players

Manchester United have been ranked as Premier League’s biggest money wasters because of van Gaal’s rigid tactic of “suppressing” the natural talent of new player in the club. Recently, £36 million summer signing Anthony Martial has been a case in point.

The former-Monaco forward arrived at Old Trafford and showed great performance by scoring four goals in his first four game for the club but has since only managed to score only 3 goals in the next 19 appearance for United.

According to the Mirror, van Gaal has been “accused of wrecking the young Frenchman’s confidence by playing him out of position on a wide role.”

And team-mate Daley Blind has supported Martial to regain his form by saying: “He is a bit quiet, he is still young. He is always in for a joke and he’s a good lad. If he is working that hard, like he is now — improving and improving each week — then he can become a really great striker.

He is very quick, of course, he is strong and I think he is really calm in front of the goal. He has everything needed to become a great striker.

“Now he is evolving and performing in the training sessions, working hard on and off the pitch with his languages and personality, he is coming along really well.”
