Angry Van Gaal takes shot at Man United again

Former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has yet again taken another swipe at the club and its chief executive Ed Woodward.

The Dutchman was fired at the end of the 2015/16 season after winning the FA Cup, and it appears he has not gotten over the sack, as he continues to take shots at United and Woodward.

The 66-year-old has told German newspaper Bild that Woodward gave him assurances that he was happy with his management.

He said: “What I find wrong is when a CEO says we're totally happy with you, do not believe the press. Then you win the FA Cup and are still fired.”

One aspect that he was criticised for was the way United played under his management.

Van Gaal insists, however, that if he had been given the funds he would have been able to buy star players and compete with Manchester City.

He said: “Pep Guardiola is for me currently the best coach in the Premier League.

“Pep made City a machine. He shows a style of football that I would have liked to play at Manchester United.

“But he has better players for it. For me, the process would have taken longer. Unfortunately, I did not get the time.”
