Louis van Gaal wants all team to Score Goals

Dutchman Louis van Gaal has stated that he does not need his strikers to be the only source of goals in the Manchester United team. The media have been critical of players like Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie in the last few weeks, while Radamel Falcao looks like one of the worst buys of the season.

The Colombian is only on a loan deal – which cost United around £ 6 million in fees alone – till the end of the campaign, but his return of just four league goals is unlikely to impress United into paying the remaining £ 43 million agreed at the start of the campaign.

United have three main striker’s on-board – Falcao, Rooney, and van Persie – but they have contributed only on goal since the start of February. This poor return has led to many questioning the tactics of Van Gaal. The Dutchman has frequently altered the tactics and personnel in the past few months. This is widely different from the Sir Alex Ferguson era when United rarely made changes to the tactics and it was only after the midweek Champions League when Ferguson made changes to the team. Van Gaal has responded to the criticism by saying that he does not rely only upon the strikers for the goals. (more…)

Bruno Martins Indi good Performance in WC 2014

Bruno Martins Indi is a 22 year old Dutch footballer who made a fairly good campaign with Netherlands during the 2014 World Cup and after playing with Feyernoord for over 3 years, he decided to make a move to Porto and even though he only joined the Portuguese club a few months ago, Martins Indi is being linked with a move to Manchester United.

Originally when Louis van Gaal was first unveiled as the new coach of Manchester United and during those opening few weeks, Martins Indi was one of the players that was rumored to be on the wish-list of the Dutch coach as Martins Indi had already impressed Louis van Gaal during the time when they worked together for Netherlands during the 2014 World Cup but even with all of the rumors that were going around, a deal could never be completed.
