Man United star: I'm only half the player under Van Gaal's bad management
A Manchester United first-team star has reportedly confessed that he’s half the player under the management of Louis van Gaal.
Rumours have been rife in recent weeks that United players are unhappy with Van Gaal’s methods – and this will do the Dutchman no favours.
According to Daily Telegraph reporter Jason Burt, who was speaking on BBC 5Live, a United player told him he’s not reaching his full potential because of Van Gaal’s methods, and he’s only half the player that he could be.
‘I’ve got to be careful what I say here,’ he explained.
‘But I’ve spoken to one player at United who told me he’s half the player he can be here at the moment because of the way they are playing.
‘He doesn’t feel that it’s fair on him. He doesn’t feel that it’s fair on the fans.
‘He can’t express himself properly and finds it very difficult to play here.’
Victor Valdes is the only senior United player known to have fallen out with Van Gaal, but several other players are not currently playing at their best.
