The manager of Manchester United, Louis van Gaal said the reason for the poor results of English teams in Europe lies in the exhaustion of the Premier League.
According to the Dutchman, the English teams have to deal with class opponents of mainland Europe, but heavy on the island Championship does not allow them to be competitive.
`The Premier League is extremely strong. It`s not easy to win every week and always have to fight to the last. Teams are throwing in every game adviced by soccer picks of life and death and to ussees to keep his squad fresh, you have to constantly change.`, said the Dutchman.
`Because of these changes in Europe, we rarely play with the best we have. And here is the difference between the English and the other teams. In the other leagues there is no such competition and this allows our opponents to be fresh against us and to give everything of themselves.`, explained van Gaal.
`I can`t guarantee that this will happen, but I believe that all four English teams in the Champions League have to skip the group stage.`, said the manager of Manchester United.
On Wednesday, United is going against Wolfsburg in a search of a first win in this year`s tournament, after the Red Devils fell as a guest at PSV Eindhoven with 1:2 in their first meeting.
Losses in their eponymous debut fights recorded more Manchester City and Arsenal, while Chelsea only came to the three points of the English teams in the race.
