Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has criticized Louis Van Gaal style, noting that he “would not enjoy” playing in the Dutchman’s side as they lack creativity.
Manchester United lost a penalty shoot out to Middlesbrough in the League Cup on Wednesday after a goalless 120 minutes at Old Trafford and despite praising United’s defense. Scholes who played 718 games for United lamented the team’s style of play.
“There’s a lack of creativity and risk. It’s a team now you wouldn’t want to play against because they’re tightly organized.
“But it seems he (Van Gaal) doesn’t want players to beat men and it’s probably not a team I’d have enjoyed playing in.” Scholes told BBC Radio Manchester.
Van Gaal’s men sit fourth on the Premier League table, two points behind leaders Manchester City. They have now failed to score in their last two games – and Van Gaal has admitted the lack of goals is “a concern”.
