It has been reported that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal refused to hang his players out to dry after their thrashing at Leicester City.
Van Gaal read his team the riot act after Sunday’s defeat but refused to blame them for one of the most bizarre United performances of recent times.
He said: “I don’t think my players are robots, they are human beings and I think that human beings make errors and faults. I’m a manager who always wants to evaluate and discuss. That’s the way I do it and I have done it this week also.
“The young players are always ready. They have hunger to play. Manchester United youth education has a certain level that can provide that.
“It’s a big difference from youth level to Premier League but in one game you can show yourself better than regular.”
