Kanchelskis not convinced by Louis van Gaal's tactics.

I felt sorry for the fans says Man United legend.

It might take Manchester United ten years to secure the Premier League title with Louis van Gaal in charge according to former Reds winger Andrei Kanchelskis.

The former United attacker watched United's defeat to Southampton at Old Trafford and according to his comments, he didn’t enjoy what he saw as he watched the clash with former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Dusan Tadic's goal secured the win for the Saints after United put in a disappointing performance.

The Reds boss has been criticised for using weird systems against opponents which either reduces the tempo of their game or allows them have so much possession without purpose.

Kanchelskis was part of a successful side at Old Trafford who won titles and doesn’t fancy Louis van Gaal's side competing with Chelsea and defending Champions Manchester City.

'I don't understand the type of football he is instilling into his players,' said Kanchelskis as the Daily Mail reported.

'I don't fancy their chances with him in charge - they aren't going to compete with Chelsea and Manchester City.

'They looked awful. Seventy-five thousand people came to the stadium to watch but they were an embarrassment. I felt sorry for the fans,' he added.

'He may be able to solve some of the problems by changing his personnel but on the whole I don't fancy my old team's prospects with him in charge.'

'United's players from 1993 - the likes of Paul Ince, Eric Cantona, Paul Scholes, Peter Schmeichel, Ryan Giggs - would be tearing their hair out.'
