Louis van Gaal is ‘quite an arrogant man’, says Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown pulls no punches in his assessment of Louis van Gaal.

Previewing the new Premier League season for the Daily Mail, Keown says the Manchester United boss ‘needs to prove he’s worth the hype’, questioning his ability to get key performances from high-profile signings.


‘He’s quite an arrogant man,’ says Keown. ‘He’s spent a lot of money, failed to get the best out of Angel di Maria and Falcao and his judgment is now questionable.’

Following several significant comings and goings at Old Trafford over the summer months, the pressure is on Van Gaal to build on last season’s fourth-place finish.
