Di Maria criticised Van Gaal this week, claiming his failure to settle at Old Trafford, since a big-money move from Real Madrid, was down to the Dutch manager’s constant changing of the team. The Paris Saint-Germain attacker says he was never allowed to play in just one position.
But Van Gaal has hit back at the 28-year-old.
The Dutch boss, who broke the British transfer record on the Argentina winger in 2014, responded: “I have never seen (many) players who looks at himself, who looks to the way they have performed here and that is always the fault of the manager.
“So he is one of the players who are in the row of players who have no self-criticism and, unfortunately, it is also my life as a manager. It is always like that.”
