Van Gaal blasts Devils

United boss criticises his players for not keeping possession after taking 3-0 lead

SILKY SKILL: Juan Mata taking a long pass from Wayne Rooney before looping the ball over Roma goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski for Man United's second goal.
"(Juan) Mata, (Ander) Herrera and (Shinji) Kagawa, these are the best passers (at the club), but everything went wrong. In the second half, we forgot to keep the ball. When you are 3-0 ahead, the only thing you have to do is keep the ball in possession and the opponents have to run and run and run." - Louis van Gaal (above) not happy with his team’s performance

He got his second consecutive win as Manchester United manager, but Louis van Gaal was not a happy man. The demanding 62-year-old Dutchman hit out at his players for almost allowing Roma to break his 100 per cent record. Unlike in their 7-0 thrashing of the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Red Devils were slow off the mark in the 3-2 win over Roma in Denver, Colorado in the United States yesterday morning (Singapore time). Wayne Rooney scored twice and Juan Mata also got on the score sheet with a stunning goal, before Roma's second-half fightback. Van Gaal was annoyed with the way his team failed to close the game out after going 3-0 up, but he thinks the fact that the game took place in 30 deg C heat, some 1,600 metres above sea level, did not help his players. United flew to Washington DC yesterday ahead of their next match in the International Champions Cup against Inter Milan on Wednesday morning. - PA Sport.
