Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has stated he has done his very best with the squad at his disposal.
United are fifth on the table with four games to go and despite making it to the final of the FA cup after beating Everton 2-1, Van Gaal is still under immense pressure.
Nevertheless Van Gaal has come under intense scrutiny this term due to a number of below-par performances, and the Dutchman has now blamed the club’s woes on a lack of “quick, creative players”.
“I have said everything before. I’ve said that, also in the transfer period,” Van Gaal told reporters.
“That’s a tricky remark of me because I have to manage players whose quality is not always what I want.
“But still we are here, still we are fighting for the fourth place, also we are in the final of the FA Cup.
“We have played in three competitions, I think we are the team who have played the most matches in this season. We’ve done it with a small group with 14 injuries.
“When everybody was fit, I tell it again, I have said it before. We were first in the league at that time. Then when we had 14 injuries, or the double injuries on the full-back positions, I could not solve that problem.”
United face title-chasing Leicester City, West Ham and Bournemouth in the final three games of the season ahead of their FA Cup final clash with Crystal Palace.
