Louis Van Gaal: We can’t expect too much from Manchester United kids

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is wary of too much expectation being placed on his young players.

Van Gaal says he’s careful not to ask too much of his youngsters.

When asked about the level of pressure the likes of Rashford would be subjected to at the business end of the season, Van Gaal responded: “I don’t want to give pressure to the young players. 

“It is fantastic what he [Rashford] has done already because he was one of the youngsters who have made a great contribution to the new spirit in our team.”

“The others include Borthwick-Jackson and Varela, and also now Timothy Fosu-Mensah and James Weir. They give a lot of spirit.”

“Borthwick-Jackson, Rashford and Varela have done very well and it will be more difficult for the older players to come back.”

“But when the older players reach their [true] level, then it will also be difficult for the youngsters to continue in the line-up.”
