Van Gaal still looking for the perfect game from Man Utd

by Richard Laverty

Louis van Gaal insists he wants to win a certain way at Manchester United and is yet to find ‘the perfect game’ during his time at Old Trafford.

His side are on a six-game winning run but have relied on the heroics of goalkeeper David de Gea to keep them in with a shout of taking all three points on more than one occasion during the run.

Van Gaal has spoke time and time again about his ‘philosophy’ at Old Trafford and said to judge him after three months of the season.

It may have taken a little longer than planned but Van Gaal at least seems to have recovered the winning mentality within the squad that disappeared under David Moyes.

Speaking at his Friday press conference, Van Gaal said: “I’m not only focused on results though of course that’s the main thing.

“When I speak to Sir Alex he says “what’s the problem, you’ve won”. But when you perform well you shall win more and that’s what I want to show to the fans, and the players want it also. The guarantee of wins is better when you perform better.”

Van Gaal went on to suggest the 3-0 win over Hull City was the closest he’d come to a perfect performance at United but insists he is still awaiting ‘the perfect game’.

“For example, the game against Hull was a good game. We dominated for 90 minutes and I want to see more game like that. There are too few games we are dominating 90 minutes. That’s the process. We have to wait and see but, of course, when you win six times a row then the confidence is rising.

“I’m still looking for a game that is closer to the perfect game that we’ve given until now.”
