Van Gaal will be hoping for a fluid Man United performance against Burnley tonight.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has stressed that the club’s fans are content with the style of football they are witnessing on a weekly basis.
The Dutchman took exception to Sam Allardyce’s claim that Man United have become a “long ball side”, going to the extreme lengths of even providing statistical data to prove otherwise.
The Red Devils style of play evidently changed once the game against West Ham went into the dying embers, with direct passes to Marouane Fellaini the order of the day – something Van Gall accepts.

But the experienced boss has claimed that is style of play is pleasing to the Old Trafford faithful.
“I don’t think that we are not playing attractive enough for the fans, I am not sure of that,” Van Gaal told reporters (via Evening Standard).
“In the stadium I get always applause, so I think that everyone is still happy.”
The CV the Dutchman carries speaks for itself and offers hope, but after previously stating that it would take three months for his team to shape into his image, the public remains unimpressed.
