United players aren’t used to winning the league… but are Leicester’s?

Louis van Gaal made the bizarre claims that our squad doesn't have players that are used to winning the league. He suggested Rooney and Carrick had one it once, or "maybe more", and that David de Gea had never won it.

Presumably he was trying to downplay the disappointing season we've had so far, but claiming we didn't have many champions in the team.

Why didn’t journalists challenge Van Gaal’s bizarre claim?

Ahead of Manchester United's game against Leicester City, Louis van Gaal attended the press conference in a very defensive mood.

Leicester could win the league if they beat United on Sunday, which prompted a journalist, Nick Collins from The Telegraph, to ask Van Gaal whether this was a strange position for our club to be in, given our players are so used to winning titles.

In his pre-match press conference today, ahead of Manchester United's game against Leicester on Sunday, Louis van Gaal tried to play down the question about whether it was strange for our team to be hosting the potential champions.

In doing so, he made an idiot out of himself, claiming the players in our squad aren't used to be champions, despite the fact we have loads of title winners in the team.
