Louis van Gaal on the win, unimpressed by Schweinsteiger's performance


Boss Louis van Gaal was critical of his Manchester United side despite Tuesday night’s 3-1 International Champions Cup victory over San Jose Earthquakes.

The win comes days after the 1-0 victory over Club America.

The Dutchman declared that he was satisfied with his side's performance in the first half but was very disappointed with what he saw in the second part of the game.

"The first half I was satisfied," van Gaal told reporters.

"The players have performed what we wanted in the defensive organisation and they have created a lot of chances – 10 chances - and they scored two goals so I was satisfied. You can always be better but I was satisfied.

"In the second half, we played very badly, with a lot of ball losses, and the only highlight was the goal from Pereira.

"We did not give many chances away but we gave possibilities away. There was always a threat and that was not necessary. Our positions in midfield were not as good as the first half.

"He [Bastian Schweinsteiger] was also bad.

"There was one highlight, I think, and that was Pereira. But players can play badly, certainly when you have only three days or six days of training sessions in your legs, and you have to play 45 minutes.

"Everybody can think it is easy to step in but it is not easy. In the first match, he [Schweinsteiger] played very well and now he played badly.

"That is also a process, certainly when you've only had one week of training."
