Juan Mata admits Man Utd are still getting used to Van Gaal’s tactics

Manchester United’s results have taken a turn for the worst recently, but Juan Mata has jumped to the defence of his new manager by stating that the players are still learning from Louis van Gaal and his tactics. The Iron Tulip’s stubbornness to ditch the 5-3-2 has meant criticism from some sections of the support.

“I think we are all learning from the manager,” he said.

“He is a great character and a great coach. The way he wants to play football is the right way, which is an attacking way.”

“That means we try to work hard with the ball, try to create space to pass the ball quickly and to switch it from side to side. I really like the way he sees football and we are all trying to do our best for him, the staff and for Ryan [Giggs].” Mata added.

Its great to see that Mata has backed his manager regarding the formations and team selections, because at the end of the day its the players who’ll know a lot more information about how things are going than the fans.

The squad are the ones that learn from the Dutchman every day, and it can’t be just a coincidence that so many players regarding Louis van Gaal as the manager they learn the most from.
