A Manchester United first-team player is very unhappy with Louis van Gaal’s tactics and approach to the game and feels that he’s “half the player he can be” due to what’s happening at the club, according to Daily Telegraph reporter Jason Burt.
Even though the Red Devils are in second place in the Premier League and could go top this weekend if they beat Leicester City, the style of football employed by LVG has attracted widespread criticism.
United’s game plan has been labelled ‘dull’ by fans, who have been heard chanting ‘attack, attack, attack’ in a bid to push their team forward.
In fairness, the supporters calling for change have ammunition in the fact that their side are the lowest scorers in the top seven with only 19 goals, and Burt, speaking on BBC 5Live claimed that he’s been told by a senior player at the club that he’s not pleased with the football being played:
“I’ve got to be careful what I say here, 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.”
Van Gaal is known to have fallen out with goalkeeper Victor Valdes, while Memphis Depay has been out of the XI in recent weeks.
However, the identity of the player in question remains a mystery.
