LVG: 'I Struggle For First Three Months'

LVG: 'I Struggle For First Three Months'

After criticisms of the imbalance in a Manchester United squad that he considers to be "broken", Louis van Gaal has now moved to dampen predictions that United will hit the ground running this season. "Every club where I have been, I've struggled for the first three months," Van Gaal said. "I say things as they are so you have to adapt to that way of coaching. It's not so easy." Van Gaal also said he needs a defender, and praised Luke Shaw...

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
