Van Gaal slams United players for being Unproffesional

Former Man United boss, Louis Van Gaal has criticised his former Manchester United players, describing them as "unprofessional" for refusing to read his emails.

Van Goal managed United for two seasons at Old Trafford, but was sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho after leading the club to their first FA Cup trophy in 12 years.

Van Gaal revealed he used to have individual meetings with players to track their progress, but admits they would often ignore his messages preparing them for the session - forcing him to track when they had been read.

"I developed the digital tracker with my IT man. Each player was able to log in," Van Gaal told German publication Bild.

"So I gave everyone the opportunity to prepare for the conversation with me at home and to meet me in dialogue at eye level."

When asked about players not responding to emails, he said: "That's true, too. But this testifies to their lack of professionalism and I have then addressed them. Van Gaal commended Bayern Munich Arjen Robben saying he's a professional who wants to live professionally in that he reads the emails.

Van Gaal further praised Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski, saying he tried to bring the Poland international to United.

"He is currently the best striker in the world. I also wanted to train Lewandowski and wanted to bring him to Manchester United," Van Gaal added.

"The price was not a problem for Manchester United, but Bayern did not want to let him go."
