Man United aren’t a Louis van Gaal team, says Dutch legend
Ronald de Boer says Louis van Gaal has a lot of work to do at Manchester United
Ronald de Boer believes Manchester United still aren’t playing like a Louis van Gaal team.
The Red Devils moved up to third in the Premier League table on Monday night after Robin van Persie’s brace helped to seal a 2-1 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s.
But De Boer believes Van Gaal has a lot more work to do with his United side before the Red Devils start playing attractive football, which is synonymous with the manager.
“Louis van Gaal started very poorly [this season]. He has got the team playing a bit better so they don’t give so many chances away, but still I don’t think you’ve seen a Louis van Gaal team because, for me, Louis stands for attractive and attacking football,” De Boer told talkSPORT.
“He just needs to keep his team together and grind out some points because it is not the football Louis stands for.
“I know for sure it will come. He talks about his approach as always and I believe that because he did it with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Ajax. He will get there.
“Hopefully Manchester United will give him time because at the moment the football is not worth watching.”
