Van Gaal Acknowledge long passes Yeovil Sulitkan ‘Red Devils’
Yeovil – Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Yeovil Town in the FA Cup third round. However, the ‘Red Devils‘ was made difficult by the host in the first round.
In a match that took place at Huish Park, Sunday (01/04/2015) night, United earn victory through a pair of goals from Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria. A pair of goals are created in the second half.
In the first half, United, who play with a 3-5-2 formation, often difficulties faced long passes were released from the rear to the front of the players Yeovil.
The lack of protection against three defenders they also make Yeovil easily provide pressure. As a result, United’s defenders often do backpass back when pressed by players Yeovil.
“I’ve thought of this. It’s hard to face a team like them, who play long balls,” said the United manager, Louis van Gaal, as reported by the BBC.
“We have to fight, but they give a good pressure.”
United finally change the formation and play with four defenders in the second half. Substitution formation that allows them to drain the ball of the foot to foot more comfortable.
As a result, two goals were they created.
“We do not have time to drain the ball of the foot to foot the beginning. We were a little change in the shape of the second half. But, it was forced to do because (Luke) Shaw injuries and so did Rafael,” said van Gaal.
