Louis van Gaal: Manchester United fans were right to call us s***e

first_img Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal Manchester United Louis van Gaal was resigned to agree with supporters’ scathing assessment after the Red Devils suffered an embarrassing defeat to Danish minnows FC Midtjylland in the Europa League.Chants of “we’re f*****g s**t” were heard coming from the away stand as the Premier League side fell to a 2-1 loss.Around 800 fans had made the trip to the MCH Arena for a match that cost £71 per ticket.The scoreline from the last-32, first-leg encounter means United still have every chance of securing progress to the round of 16 when they host Midtjylland in return tie at Old Trafford next week.But that doesn’t make up for what is arguably one of the club’s most embarrassing results in their proud European history.And was no less than Van Gaal’s men deserved after they delivered the latest substandard performance of their increasingly troubled season.“The fans can criticise. They can do it because when you see the second half, maybe they are right,” said the Dutch boss, whose position as manager is under ever-growing scrutiny.“We have to improve and then the fans shall support us again.”But the Dutchman disagreed with the suggestion his players’ attitude was a problem.“It’s nothing to do with attitude,” he said.“All the players want to perform in an excellent way. It is not a case of attitude.“We were not winning the second balls – that is my analysis.” 1last_img read more
