Louis van Gaal has hit back at Angel Di Maria after the Argentina winger blamed him for failing to live up to expectations at Old Trafford.
Di Maria joined Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer of 2014 for a then-British record fee of £59.7 million ($75m / €69.9).
Expectations were high for the forward, but he did not live up to his potential in just one season with United.
Speaking in an interview, Van Gaal insisted the forward’s struggles in England were nobody’s fault but his own.
“Di Maria says it was my problem. I played him in every attacking position. You can check that,” Van Gaal told the BBC.
“He never convinced me in any of those positions. He could not deal with the continuous pressure on the ball in the Premier League. That was his problem.”
