Van Gaal questions spending power & Solskjaer appointment
‘I thought Man Utd could sign anyone, I was wrong’- LVG
The Dutchman spent two seasons at Old Trafford between 2014 and 2016, in what proved to be his last coaching role before heading into retirement.
An FA Cup triumph was secured with the Red Devils, but he was unceremoniously dumped on the back of that success to make way for Jose Mourinho.
“The problem begins with, of course, that Manchester United was never refreshed,” the 67-year-old told The Guardian.
“I think when you are a manager you have to refresh every year to keep the team-building process going.”
Van Gaal added on his transfer frustrations: “I didn’t always get the players that I want. That’s the problem.
“There is [Ed] Woodward and his right hand is [head of corporate development] Matt Judge. Judge I met once in a while but not too much. And there was the head of scouting. That was the structure but you are always dependent on Woodward and Judge.
“I thought always Manchester United can buy every player because they have a lot of power. Seemingly a few players were not reachable for Manchester United. I cannot understand but it was like that.”
