Louis Van Gaal: I don’t believe in squad competition

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has played down talk of buying a striker this month.

Van Gaal has been linked with a number of forwards, including Sadio Mane, Edinson Cavani and Yoshinori Muto, but the 64-year-old was reluctant to say he would spend big on a forward in the window.

“We are looking always for solutions in the team. Also, for this moment, but we still have a good team and we can still score goals,” He said.

“I don’t believe too much in competition. I believe in trust and confidence. Maybe that is wrong but I have done it all my life. I give trust to the players.”

“The problem can be solved with money but also on the training pitch.”

“We are training but scoring goals is a quality. We have that quality but at this moment there is a lack of confidence at the right time or we need to buy another striker.”
