Andrei Kanchelskis: Van Gaal’s tactics hurt Rooney

Manchester United hero Andrei Kanchelskis believes Louis van Gaal’s tactics are damaging Wayne Rooney.

In an interview with reporters the Ukrainian explained that reason why Rooney scored so many goals was good service, however now he gets the ball in the middle of the pitch which is difficult for him to score.


If you get the ball out wide with wingers and play more aggressive there is more chance of scoring goals. Now it’s normal for Manchester United to keep possession, pass, pass, backpass. There is no attacking.
