Louis van Gaal unfazed by Paul Scholes criticism

By

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has brushed off criticism from former United midfielder Paul Scholes.

The 40-year-old told The Independent that the Red Devils should take more risks when pushing forward but the Dutchman says he is not worried by the issues raised by the Englishman.

"I don't worry about that. Paul Scholes is one of the fans and fans can criticise us," van Gaal said.

On Thursday, Scholes wrote: "It does not give me any pleasure to say that at the moment I am struggling to watch Louis van Gaal's team with any great enjoyment.

"They beat Burnley on Wednesday night but it was Burnley who had by far the best of the first half.

"At times, United's football is miserable. To beat opposing teams you have to attack, and to attack you have to take risks. Too few of the players in the current team are prepared to take those risks.

"As a midfielder at United I had to pass the ball forward and, yes, it did not always work. It did not always mean putting a chance on a plate for the strikers.

"It was up to them to get on the ball and score goals. Was it easy? No, but we were playing for United. It was not supposed to be easy.

"Of the current team, Angel Di Maria has taken more risks than any other player and, unfortunately, for him it has not worked out. He has given the ball away a lot for very little returns.

"Otherwise there seems to be an emphasis on possession. I would go further than that: there is an obsession with possession."
