Adnan Januzaj: Van Gaal ruined me

Former Manchester United man Adnan Januzaj claims Louis Van Gaal ruined his career at United.

The Belgian bagged a brace in his United debut under David Moyes in a 2-1 win against Sunderland, but his chances faded after Moyes was replaced with Gaal. Following underwhelming loan spells at Borussia Dortmund and Sunderland, he was sold to Real Sociedad this summer.

“I didn’t have any chances, really. He [Van Gaal] wasn’t giving me the right signals to up my game. I was still only a young player. When you have a young ­player, a manager has to give them confidence. Let them play and grow up. Obviously, that didn’t happen under Van Gaal, so it was a very difficult season for me. Before that, David Moyes had trusted me from day one,” Januzaj said.

Players like Di Maria, Chicharito, Falcao and Chicharito might actually agree with Januzaj on the issue of chances under Van Gaal.
