Van Gaal points out the ‘major flaw’ in Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho

Former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has stated that his successor Jose Mourinho gets out of control too often.

Louis van Gaal presided over two turbulent seasons as manager of Manchester United and despite leading the Red Devils to the FA Cup triumph, the Dutchman was duly shown the door soon after by the club hierarchy.

Following the sacking of van Gaal, United promptly went on to appoint Jose Mourinho as manager and it has to be said that the Red Devils have certainly made progress under the Portuguese boss.

Nonetheless, there are many who feel that van Gaal was unfairly treated by United and the veteran manager himself has gone on to publicly state he was not left happy at the manner in which he was dismissed by the Premier League giants.

Van Gaal attended United’s 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Anfield and following the game, the 66-year-old once again slammed the club for how he was sacked before also taking a swipe at his successor Mourinho by stating that the Portuguese tactician is unable to control his emotions.

He said, “How I have suspected it, the way his transfer as a manager to Manchester United went was not elegant at all, that resulted in my sacking.

“In principle, he (Mourinho) is not a bad guy. He can be sympathetic and he was this way when he was my assistant in the past. But he lets himself go out of control too often.”
