Will Van Gaal Prove Haters Wrong Vs Liverpool?

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has been heavily criticised by fans for his tyrannical approach, but will he get it right against Liverpool?

United take on the Reds on Saturday evening, and there’s no better way for Van Gaal to win over his club’s fans than by beating Liverpool in what is considered England’s biggest derby.

The Dutch mentor has been slammed in the media by several well-respected members of the footballing community, including Iker Casillas, Alan Shearer and Bafana Bafana manager Carlos Queiroz.

The criticism arguably began with the sale of Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain, and a series of questionable press conferences and decisions have made things worse for the boss.

Despite the stick he's received, Van Gaal has done almost everything he could’ve done up until this point, and that is buy players.

One big positive for the boss is the fact that David de Gea has signed a new four-year deal, when it looked like Van Gaal wasn’t ever going to select him again.

Fans were worried the manager was forcing De Gea out of first-team football, and perhaps even out of the club, but upon the goalkeeper’s contract extension, the boss has confirmed he will be first choice in the poles.

Let’s see what happens in the match.

A convincing win for Van Gaal’s men will be vital, and could make him a popular man among the supporters once again.

Do you think Van Gaal is the right man for the job?

Let me know!

Have a good weekend, guys!
