Van Gaal: Man Utd lack creativity - Young had a fantastic season, but he is not a 'Neymar'
Louis Van Gaal has played down Manchester United's chances of challenging for the title despite been busy in the current transfer window. The former Bayern Munich manager has said that the Red devils lack creativity compared to his rivals.
‘We only have a better balance of the team,’ reflected Van Gaal. ‘It’s not my Manchester United yet.
‘Why? Because we have to look for more balance in the team and for more creativity. For example, Chelsea have Eden Hazard, Willian and Oscar. There is a lot of creativity there. Manchester City have Sergio Aguero, it’s the same type.
‘Barcelona has Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez. We have to look also for that kind of player.
‘We look for more creativity and when it is possible to buy for a reasonable price players from that level we shall do that.
‘You can expect things from Ashley Young. He had a fantastic season. But he is not a Neymar and we have to compete with that kind of class.’
|Hmmm, Van Gaal, How do you want Ashley Young to feel about this statement???|
