Man United newbie could cause ‘problems’, says ex-star

Louis van Gaal is facing “problems” with the harmony in his Manchester United squad following the arrival of Radamel Falcao, according to Ray Wilkins.

The Red Devils beat the transfer deadline yesterday to complete the headline-grabbing loan move for the Colombian superstar, who will be at Old Trafford for at least the season after a difficult spell at Monaco.

With a fantastic scoring record through his career and proven pedigree at the top level, his switch has been met with positivity at United by many, but others have questioned where he will fit in alongside the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Angel di Maria and Juan Mata.

One man in that camp is former midfielder Wilkins, who believes that LVG may have a tough time keeping his band of attacking stars happy:

“Sometimes you can have too many players,” he told talkSPORT. “The signing of Falcao may cause a few problems for Van Gaal.

“Everyone wants to play and, if they’re not in the side, then it could be a little bit disruptive.

“It’s going to be very difficult to give everyone game time, especially now they’re out of Capital One Cup.”
