Louis van Gaal only thinking about short-term, says ex-Man United coach
Mike Phelan believes that Louis van Gaal is only thinking about the "short-term" at Manchester United
Mike Phelan believes that Louis van Gaal is only thinking about the “short-term” at Manchester United.
The Dutchman signed a three-year deal to take over at Old Trafford this summer following David Moyes’ dismissal.
We’ve got a manager who is a proven winner, but it is a short-term thing for him
Van Gaal allowed striker Danny Welbeck to leave his boyhood club and join Arsenal last week – and former United coach Phelan feels that decision indicates that the new manager is not concerned about the long-term success of the Red Devils.
“The Welbeck thing is just something that came at a certain time in the club’s history and so people are saying the club has forgotten about its history,” Phelan said.
“We’ve got a manager who is a proven winner, but it is a short-term thing for him. He has signed a three-year deal and is going to be here for that length of time.
“The club’s priority now is to win things so, unfortunately, other things take a step back, but there are people working all the hours God sends to bring kids through.”
