Manchester, Jan 10 : Manchester United mager Louis van Gaal has asserted that the former English Premier League (EPL) champions are in need of creative players as Spian intertiol Juan Mata is not being able to do enough on the right wing. Juan Mata was fielded as a winger in the 1-0 FA Cup win over Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Saturday night, but was taken off in the second half as van Gaal felt that the Spaird was not being effective enough.
"Juan Mata is playing the right side and he is doing fantastically well because he always has a big contribution for our team. But he is not a right winger in the profile we want. In spite of his profile being different, he does very well normally. Today he was less, but he is also a human being like everyone," van Gaal was quoted as saying by the British media on Sunday. IANS
