Louis van Gaal admits ‘big’ Man United injury concern
Louis van Gaal reveals that he has been trying to discover the reason behind Manchester United's injury problems
Louis van Gaal has revealed that he has been trying to analyse why Manchester United have been dogged by injury problems in recent months.
The Red Devils are again without a number of key players ahead of Sunday’s clash with Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford, including the likes of Phil Jones, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini.
I’m evaluating why and I’ve changed my preparation scheme because of that
Louis van Gaal
And the Dutchman, who is hoping to notch up his first Premier League win this weekend, is looking into possible causes and remedies for the injury situation.
“I have always said I am not only evaluating the players but I am also evaluating myself and my staff,” said Van Gaal.
“Now, we have a lot of injuries so I’m evaluating why and I’ve changed my preparation scheme because of that, for example, and I’ve also changed what we have to do after the match. I have changed the schedule of times.
“It [the injury situation] is a big concern. I think it is not nice that I cannot compare all the players and, of course, we have evaluated how we train but, for the level what I demand as a coach, we need to train like that and the players have to adapt to that level.
“That is the crucial thing. What can we do to adapt to a certain level the players can fulfil but also so that we also improve our level?”
