ScholesPaul Scholes has described Manchester Louis van Gaal as a “mad genius” who will bring fear factor back to Old Trafford.
2012-13 champions finished seventh last year, having sacked David Moyes in April after just 10 months in charge.
“From what I’ve seen already he looks a bit mad to me. Like a mad genius,” former player told Independent .
“There’ doubt these players need to perform this year or they won’t be there for very long.”
Scholes, 39, who briefly joined backroom staff after Moyes’ sacking, also believes Dutchman Van Gaal requires more signings if he is to challenge for the Premier title in his first .
The 20-time champions have already brought in defender Luke Shaw and midfielder Ander Herrera this summer for a combined total of almost £60m.[eap_ad_2]
But Van Gaal has lost the of experienced centre-backs Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, left-back Patrice Evra and veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs – “massive players who have won 30 titles between them,” according to Scholes.
“I’m sure he [Van Gaal] would have liked to have signed more players,” the ex-England international said. “He’ managed to do that yet. Are the players out there available?
“People want to play for . It’s huge. You get the chance to win the Premier , but possibly this year if they don’t any signings.”
Meanwhile, Juan Mata, who signed for United from Chelsea for £37.1m in January 2014, believes the club’s main focus should be getting back into Europe.
“We would all love to win the league but the most important goal – what this club needs – is to play in the Champions League again,” the Spaniard told the Daily Mail.
“I cannot imagine a Champions League two years in a row without United.”
Mata, 26, also looks to have emerged as favoured forward from the “four number 10s” Van Gaal said he had at the club, and is revelling in the role.
“This wants passing and movement and triangles. It’s how I play my best,” the former Valencia player added. “But my is to assist and score.” (BBC Sport)[eap_ad_3]
