Van Gaal unimpressed despite win

By on February 15, 2015

Manchester United went back to winning ways against Burnley after a hard fought draw in the game against the Hammers last weekend but manager, Louis van Gaal is far from being impressed despite the 3-1 win. Defender, Chris Smalling scored a brace and a late penalty from Robin van Persie was all it took a lack-lustre Manchester United to get past Sean Dyche’s men at Old Trafford.

The United boss expressed serious displeasure after the game admitting that the Red Devils were in a frustrating form throughout the match despite the home fans chanting their lungs out from the stands. However, the Dutch tactician contested the fact that the display against Burnley was the latest in a list of mediocre performances when he explained to reporters that he could not agree with their analysis. He insisted that although the performance on Wednesday was poor, the team had not recorded a loss in about 16 or 17 matches and have even scored more goals in advantage.

Louis van Gaal further revealed to the press that a closer observation of the first half against Burnley shows that the visitors were the better team seeing as they continued to pile up pressure on the Red Devils although resilience on the part of the hosts ensured that all the efforts of Burnley never came to fruition. The former Dutch national team coach revealed that he was satisfied with the 2-1 situation in the first half which gave him the opportunity to reorganize his squad at a time when they were still in the lead.

He also claimed to have told his players before the match that the fact that they win matches such as these is a good indication of better things to come. While admitting that the booing from the home fans were a thing of concern, he noted that the team will have to get past the memories of this match on to greater things.
