It’s been almost three years since Sir Alex has left his duty as the club’s manager. Since then fans are readily blaming solely managers for all the ups and downs. But that’s not how it should be, right? Why aren’t players being blamed more for any defeat Manchester United faces?
All Louis van Gaal can do is make things work with whatever he has available in his injury-hit squad. A man of his experience and talent shouldn’t be questioned this often about his philosophy to manage his team. The Dutch manager has shown what he is capable of and what he has achieved during his time at other European clubs.
We take a look at three positive points from LVG’s managerial career at Manchester United:
- Development of Youth Players:
Whether van Gaal wanted to or the circumstances forced him to, the Dutch boss has given many youth players start to their first senior team game bit earlier than they’d have expected. And surprisingly, it turned out to be decent enough. This benefits the club in a long-term manner. Players like Rashford and Borthwick-Jackson can already achieve a lot if they continue with their form, and can become the future stars at the club. The Dutch manager is in a way, following the club’s traditions of trusting in academy players. If the young players do succeed, it can be just like or almost like “Class of 92” all over again.
