Man United players react to van Gaal tactics
LOUIS VAN GAAL has upset members of his Manchester United squad over his erratic tactics, according to reports.
The manager oversaw United’s failure to reach the Champions League knockout stages on Tuesday.
They will play in the Europa League next year after losing 3-2 in Wolfsburg to finish third in their group.
And Van Gaal’s decision to withdraw £42.5million signing Juan Mata for youngster Nick Powell with 21 minutes remaining in Germany has left members of the squad bemused, claim the Times.
United were trailing the game, which they needed to win, 2-1 at the time of Mata’s substitution.
The Spaniard had set up Anthony Martial’s 10th-minute opener.
There is no immediate threat to Van Gaal’s job as club officials stand by their manager.
However, the Dutchman is wary that he must at least make the top three in the Premier League this season to remain at the helm for a final campaign in 2016/17.
