A Manchester United player, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Daily Telegraph’s Jason Burt that he feels his is only “half the player he can be”, because of manager Louis van Gaal’s tactics and approach.
“I’ve got to be careful what I say here,” Burt told the BBC in a radio interview of his off-the-record interview with a high profile footballer.
“I’ve spoken to one player at United who told me he’s half the player he can be here at the moment, because of the way they’re playing. He doesn’t feel it’s fair on him, he doesn’t feel it’s fair on the fans. He can’t express himself properly and he finds it very difficult to play here.”
When asked, Burt added that United’s young, up-and-coming stars such as Mempis Depay and Anthony Martial, do “absolutely not” feel they can raise their concerns with the manager.
