Manchester United players blasted despite 3-2 victory over Roma

Manchester United stars may have enjoyed two consecutive victories, but Louis van Gaal has made his presence known by slamming their performance despite beating Roma 3-2, talkSPORT reports. 

A Wayne Rooney brace and a Juan Mata strike made it 3-0 just before the end of the first half, with goals coming in the 36th, 39th, and 44th minute.

However, United lost two goals in the final 15 minutes to end the game 3-2, leaving Van Gaal angry at their lack of composure in the second half. 

“I think we don’t play a good match,” Van Gaal said. All my good passers failed today. I think it was because of the height and the air.

“[Juan] Mata, [Ander] Herrera and [Shinji] Kagawa these are the best passers [at the club], and everything went wrong.

“In the second half we forgot to keep the ball. When you are 3-0 ahead the only thing you have to do is keep the ball in possession and the opponent has to run and run and run.”
