De Boer, who has previously played under Van Gaal at Ajax and in the Holland national team, feels the criticism levelled at the United manager is baseless.

He told talkSPORT: “I think it’s normal when you have a transition with coaches, there are always people who like to stay in their comfort zone and have no change.

“But some people think change is good and I think that is more important. You have to have a change once in a while.

“I think Louis is directly adapting some players and I think that takes time and I think we saw that for many years with him.

“At the end everybody believed in his way of thinking and everybody was getting the same ideas. I think that’s the transition he is in now I guess.

“I think it [the criticism] is unfair. He has his own philosophy and ideas and he’s very difficult to push him aside.

“That’s also his strength because as a manager you need your own philosophy and in the end he has strong belief of where he will end up with his team and that’s a strong point for him.”
