Van Gaal Blames Ref, Poor Defending For United’s UCL Exit

Van Gaal Blames Ref, Poor Defending For United’s UCL Exit

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has promised to analyse his team’s poor defensive display in their crushing 3-2 defeat against Wolfsburg on Tuesday night, while blaming the referee for some of the calls during the game.

The defeat in which a Jesse Lingard goal was disallowed for offside, condemned United to the Europa League.
“There were decisions of the referee against PSV and today that were not positive to us,” Van Gaal said during his ppst-match press conference.


United crashed out of the Champions League after conceding three goals though they scored two themselves and had a goal ruled out for offside.

Van Gaal spoke to reporters after the game during his post match conference.

“It is difficult to understand when you defend so well normally”, the Dutchman said.

“So I am happy that we have scored, but I am not happy we gave away a goal twice in two minutes.

“I have to analyse it why that has happened because normally we are very good in that aspect of football.”

Van Gaal however tried to see some positives from the defeat: “The last matches we played we didn’t score goals, but now we have scored goals.”

United finished in third place with 8 points in six games and will play in the Europa League next year.

  • People are clamouring for the sack of LvG. Some are accusing him of deliberately killing the club with his brand of football. Some said he is too defence minded but yesterday he attacked but still lose. Some fans are calling for his sack because he is not kloppique. Whatever that means but what they are saying is that they want him to be getting out of his seat like Jorpen Klopp, the new Liverpool fc coach to motivate his players.They forgot that he is an old man and jumping up and down may elicit HBP of Stroke. Some are accusing him, including the players that his style of training is too hard and regid. Look these guys are professionals and they are well taken care of medically, nutientionally, financially, emotionally and otherwise. So they cannot complain and they should stop complaining. After equalising and it was 2-2, why did the players not know that they are playing away and so should tighten hings at te back. Cant they think for themselves? I have seen a team that the coach and the assistant were red-carded with no real coach to hndle things. The players organised themselves and came out victorous. The players has 90% of the blame. The coach's subs were suspect sha, But geneally speaking, the players should bear the bigger portion of the blame.
