Arsenal legend questions whether Louis van Gaal’s gets Man United expectations

Ian Wright slams Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal

Ian Wright has questioned whether Louis van Gaal understands the expectations of Manchester United supporters.

The Red Devils couldn’t find a way past West Ham United’s stubborn defence on Saturday after a goalless draw with Slaven Bilic’s Hammers side at Old Trafford.

Former Arsenal striker Wright was left bemused after Van Gaal defended United’s inability to test West Ham goalkeeper Adrian in Saturday’s stalemate at Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal’s men racked up 21 attempts on Adrian’s goal but the Hammers goalkeeper only faced one shot on target in the absence of Wayne Rooney.

Wright told BBC Sport: “I can’t understand that. One shot on target. The expectations of the United supporters.

“Does he not understand the expectations of that club?”

The Red Devils have already drawn five of their 15 games in the Premier League this season.

In addition, United have played out six goalless draws in 24 games in all competitions this term.
