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.”
