Ex-Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has claimed that executive-vice chairman Ed Woodward has failed to sign high-quality players during his spell at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal has been United manager between 2014 and 2016 before being sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho after winning the FA Cup.

"Ketika diumumkan Louis van Gaal akan melatih United, sekitar empat sampai lima pemain menghubungi saya dan khawatir hubungan buruknya dengan banyak pemain Brasil akan menghambat karier saya di klub. Mereka memberi contoh Rivaldo di Barcelona, saya tidak memercayai hal itu pada awalnya." Sumber: ESPN #manchesterunited #manunited #louisvangaal #weareuab #unitedarmybara
The Dutchman spent more than £260m signing Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Angel di Maria, Matteo Darmian, Sergio Romero, Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis Depay and forward Anthony Martial.
However, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss believes he could have been a bigger success at Old Trafford if Ed Woodward had signed more of his transfer targets.
“I asked many, many times for players of the highest quality. But I didn’t get the players I wanted,” said Van Gaal.
“I’m disappointed in certain human beings at United — and they know I’m disappointed.”
“I am an emotional guy, I say too much in interviews. I am always authentic. You see what you see with me.”
The 66-year-old, who has been without a job since 2016, has won FA Cup in two seasons at Old Trafford.
