Two of Louis Van Gaal's most critical commentators were on his back again following United's pitiful 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Europa League last night. The two former United players took turns lamenting the performance of Van Gaal's side - branding it "disjointed" and "shambolic".
When asked about their comments by reporters after the game, Van Gaal was in no mood to tolerate it, blasting the journalist who dared to ask him:
Is it important what Rio Ferdinand is saying, is that important to you?
You don't give your opinion and then you give Rio Ferdinand's opinion - that is very strong of you.
Van Gaal did admit that his team could not cope with the pressure on display from Klopp's Liverpool, but rejected the notion that United were completely outplayed throughout the game. The Dutchman credited is goalkeeper for keeping the score down - and while he thinks Liverpool were the better team in the first half, United shaded things in the second.
We await the next brave person to ask him what he thinks of more criticism from former players.
