Manchester United’s manager Louis van Gaal, has claimed that he inherited a “broken” squad from David Moyes.
The Old Trafford outfit finished seventh in the Premier League last season – their lowest ever league finish – and will not play in the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 19 years.
Van Gaal explained that too many players at United can play in the same position and it is an “unbalanced” situation.
“When there is success you have a very good squad, and now I have to follow and the squad was broken, I think,” Van Gaal said.
“When you look at the squad, there is quality.
“There is Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck. You also see Juan Mata, Marouane Fellaini, and you see Ander Herrera.
“There are a lot of players that can play in the same position. It is not in balance.
“It’s more difficult to succeed in a difficult situation than in a fantastic situation.”
