The Old Trafford outfit have risen to third in the table…
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has demanded more from his players despite them having not lost since 2 November, reports the Mirror.
The Mancunian club are currently on an 11 game unbeaten run that has seen them rise to third in the Premier League. However, the Dutchman thinks that his charges can still play better before the season’s end. Even with their good form the Old Trafford based side are still nine points off league leaders Chelsea.
However, the former Barcelona boss is happy that results have picked up after a slow start.
“I felt not so happy myself because I was responsible and guilty for the results so I am very happy we won a number of matches in a row. We are still building up a process,” the perfectionist said.
“I think, as a trainer, coach and manager, that I have to analyse the performances of my players because that is the most important thing and that shows how far we are in the process.
“That is still not good enough, in my opinion, but I hope we shall improve.”
United go up against Southampton in their next match, with the fixture being key in the two sides’ Champions League hopes. If the Saints win they will overtake van Gaal’s side and go third in the league.
The 63-year-old will have welcomed the news that Luke Shaw will be able to play against his former club, after the left-back hobbled off at half time in their last match against Yeovil Town on Sunday.
