Kevin Kilbane: Man United haven’t made progress under Louis van Gaal

Kevin Kilbane says the Red Devils haven't made any real progress since Louis van Gaal took over the reins

Kevin Kilbane says Manchester United haven’t made any progress since Louis van Gaal took over the reins at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils haven’t won any of their last eight games in all competitions after a goalless draw with defending Premier League champions Chelsea on Monday night.

United target Harry Kane has scored more Premier League goals this season than Red Devils trio Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay combined.

In fact, the Red Devils have struggled to rack up many comprehensive victories since Van Gaal replaced David Moyes as the Scot’s permanent successor at Old Trafford in 2014.

Former Everton and Wigan Athletic defender Kilbane says the Red Devils lack any spark in their side ahead of their home clash against Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.

“I don’t think there has been any progression over Van Gaal’s reign,” Kilbane told Newstalk’s Off The Ball.

“I don’t think there’s been any spark in the side when I’ve been watching them. That’s why questions marks over Van Gaal will remain.”

The 20-time English champions are nine points behind leaders Leicester City ahead of the visit of Swansea this weekend.
