Louis van Gaal has criticised the structure of Manchester United and claims even Sir Alex Ferguson had “problems” with the way the club was run.
The 67-year-old believes his failings at the side was partly down to the current structure in place at the club along with their focus on commercial targets rather than footballing objectives.
“At the moment there is a structure with a scouting division and above that is someone at (Ed) Woodward’s right hand,” Van Gaal told BBC Sport .
“The structure is not so bad but the right hand has to be a technical director with a football view, not somebody with a banker’s role.
“Unfortunately, we are talking about a commercial club, not a football club. I spoke to Ferguson about this and in his last years, he also had problems with it.”
