Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has revealed that anger was what pulled the club out of their slump with a win against Swansea this weekend, according to The Sun.
After losing to Stoke against Stoke on Boxing Day, the Dutchman appeared to be on his way to the unemployment line, but Red Devils chiefs sought to stick with him, and he used the anger of four consecutive defeats, their poor performances and being written off so early to help overcome the struggling Swans (via Sun).
“They are very angry that we have lost so many games in a row and want to change the situation,” he said.
“I shall think now the pressure is lowering, the performances shall be better every week. But that is also dependable on whether or not we score goals.
“And when we score goals, and we create always chances, it is a big difference.”
