A host of Manchester United players have reportedly confronted manager Louis van Gaal over his ‘hardline’ training methods.
The Dutchman is well-known for his uncompromising management technique, and it seems some United players have had enough following the Red Devils’ stuttering start to the season.
According to The Times, a group of senior United players approached Van Gaal to raise complaints about the lack of creativity in the side’s style of play.
The group of United players are also understood to be concerned over the lack of flexibility in Van Gaal’s training methods, with The Times reporting that some in the squad believe the current training regime is ‘hampering performances’.
The Red Devils have scored just three goals in its opening four Premier League fixtures, and Van Gaal will now be under even more pressure in the lead-up to Saturday’s clash with Liverpool.
£36m signing Anthony Martial is set to make his United debut in the much-anticipated match while it remains to be seen if Van Gaal will throw David de Gea back into the side.
