Louis van Gaal just can’t seem to stay out of the headlines at the moment for one reason or another – whether it is tactics, results, or transfer policy, the media are all over the Dutchman and his squad this season.
After bowing out in the group stages of the Champions League, and seemingly out of the Premier League title race already, the pressure has continued to mount on him.
After spending over £250m during his reign, Van Gaal has come been scrutinised over justifying his signings. Big money names such as Anthony Martial and Morgan Schneiderlin have caught the eye in equally good and bad measures.
Van Gaal may be best served looking into the lower leagues as he looks to shape the immediate and long term future of the club – Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli are current proof of the talent available lower down.
