Louis van Gaal offloading big names at Manchester United is a quality former Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson had, says Bryan Robson.
The United boss has raised a few eyebrows over the last three months by deciding to ditch strikers Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao and goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
“It’s very similar to Sir Alex Ferguson,” Robson said on the Sky Sports website.
“Louis van Gaal has been very successful in his career. He has been a bit ruthless with a few of his decisions lately and that is what good managers do.
“At certain stages, managers have to make major decisions and sometimes people have to move on and the manager has got to change things the way he sees it. And that is what he is doing, that’s part of his job – you have to be ruthless at stages.”
