Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has slammed his strikers and that they can never win the title with their wasteful finishing, Daily Mail reports.
The Red Devils were able to get a point against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, but could have gotten a victory if Van Gaal’s attackers took the opportunities that came their way.
The Dutch manager was already unhappy when they came away from Aston Villa with only a draw, and felt his side’s finishing let them down once again at White Hart Lane.
“I said in the dressing room that when you cannot win such type of matches when you are the better team — like against Villa and also now — then it is very difficult to be the champions at the end of the season,” Van Gaal said.
“When you play your best first half of the season, as we did, and you are playing at White Hart Lane against a top-six club and you play like that and create six to eight open chances, then you have to finish them.”
The former Bayern Munich boss will hope United can grab all three points when they travel to Stoke on New Year’s day.
