Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal found himself under attack from all sides Wednesday following his team's meek group-phase elimination from the Champions League.Van Gaal was already under fire over United's dour brand of football, amid a run of five 0-0 draws in 10 games, and the club's former players did not hold back in their assessment of the latest setback.Former center-back Rio Ferdinand, analyzing the game for BT Sport, said that dropping into the Europa League was unacceptable for a club who reached three Champions League Finals between 2008 and 2011 .Michael Owen, another former United player, said that Van Gaal was under "severe pressure," while the former Arsenal and Wales striker John Hartson suggested the club had reached a critical juncture.United's next six league games are all against teams in the bottom half of the table, even if that list includes champions Chelsea, while they host third-tier Sheffield United in the FA Cup third round.
