Ruud Gullit has revealed compatriot Louis van Gaal is “crazy” about Mats Hummels.
Gullit admits he was surprised Van Gaal didn’t do more to bolster his defence last summer and that the Manchester United boss should have done more to sign Hummels.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “The only thing for me that is a surprise is Van Gaal didn’t buy any good central defenders, that had to be his priority.
“He was crazy about Hummels and wanted to buy him. They did not sign him, and that was a surprise. He gets results. The more results he gets, the more confidence they get and the better they will play.”
