LVG and new arrivals a season more experienced
While Louis van Gaal endeared himself to the Old Trafford faithful in 2014/15, some of his first new arrivals still have some way to go in order to convince Red Devils fans that they’re up to the job.
Angel Di Maria was the biggest disappointment after being brought in for a whopping £60 million while even succumbing to the substitutes bench behind Ashley Young nearer to the end of the season following a lack of impact from the Argentine superstar.
However, as we have seen from Mesut Ozil at Arsenal, things usually do get better in foreign imports’ second season in the Premier League and given his obvious talents, United fans would be foolish to think Di Maria can’t turn it around.
Of the other big name arrivals of last summer, Ander Herrera was the biggest success story and is only set to improve next term while United fans are likely to see far more of Marcos Rojo following injury troubles that plagued him last time round.
And as for Daley Blind, he was absolutely solid in the middle of the park and considering more recruits are set to be brought in under van Gaal, United will again have one of the strongest squads – a staple part of winning any title.
