Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has blast Louis van Gaal for turning the Red Devils into a boring side, following a 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Saturday.
Manchester United went into the contest with an opportunity to go top of the EPL standings.
However, the Red Devils, who struggled to create chances, failed to spark once again and Schmeichel slammed the Dutchman for the way he’s setting up the team.
Several Manchester United supporters took to social media, especially Twitter to voice their frustration, while calling for Van Gaal to either change his style or step away from the job.
Schmeichel feels the fans’ pain.
“Historically Manchester United fans expect something else. It’s a working man’s club, where people come and have some relief for the week, get entertained,” the Dane said on Sky Sports.
“I became a Manchester United fan when they won very little, but they always played well, always played entertaining football, always had exciting players.
“It only came with Alex Ferguson, that he combined the two things – entertaining players and winning.
“This is what Manchester United fans are complaining about.
“The fans can demand entertaining football and I think they should keep demanding it.”
Manchester United dominated the possession and made almost 600 passes against Leicester City, but Schmeichel says all those “irrelevant” because the team is not creating anything chances to score.
“This is why Van Gaal is being criticised for the way Manchester United play. I don’t think many Manchester United fans want to see this,” he said.
“I want Manchester United to try and win the game. In the best days – under Sir Matt Busby and Alex Ferguson – they were always going for it.”
