Owen Hargreaves believes that Louis Van Gaal was a scapegoat for Manchester United poor form.
Former Manchester United and England midfielder Owen Hargreaves has said that Louis van Gaal is not responsible for the poor results at Manchester United. He believes that the board should blame themselves for the poor season.
Owen Hargreaves believes that Manchester United is a club in decline and that they currently do not have the best players. For him, the best players in the Premier League play at Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal. He said that it is the board that is responsible for signing new players and that Louis van Gaal cannot make miracles.
For Hargreaves, the club is just looking for excuses and has sacked Louis van Gaal for nothing. He said that first it was David Moyes who was the culprit, and now they have found another scapegoat in van Gaal.
He believes that there need to be changes in the club management if they want to challenge for the title soon. He said that the board should sit down and think on what is not functioning at the team at the moment. For him, the club should rethink about their philosophy and sign players that can play according to their style. At the moment, there is a lack of quality players at Manchester United, and they need to rectify this issue. He said that with the players they have got now, there is no way they are going to win the title.
Jose Mourinho has just been appointed as the new manager of Manchester United, and he will be hoping to build a team that will suit his stye. So far he has signed Eric Bailly to improve his defence, and there is news that he might be signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic soon. According to some pundits, there will be more arrivals as soon as the Euros is over.
