Johannesburg: Louis Van Gaal has dismissed the criticism made by former midfielder Paul Scholes that Manchester United ‘lack creativity and risk’, saying that he is a risk taker. Scholes, who made 718 appearances for the United, also said that his former team is no longer entertaining. Van Gaal welcomed Scholes’ opinion, but disagreed with the suggestions that United is boring,Sport24 reported. The Dutchman said his side has always entertained people as he hasn’t seen so much of spectators in any other stadium. The 64-year-old further said that his side is improving, but it can’t be done in a year as it’s a long going process. United are currently at the fourth spot in standings, having 20 points from the ten games which they have played. They will lock horns with Crystal Palace today.
