Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has admitted he is unhappy with his side’s recent form.
Man United have been poor as of late and haven’t scored in over five hours of football following stalemates against Manchester City, Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace.
The 0-0 draw against Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday left United fourth in the Premier League, four points behind City at the summit.
Van Gaal insisted results have to improve if United are to be successful this term.
When asked if he was happy overall with his side’s recent form, van Gaal said: “No, I am not happy because if you want to be the champions, you have to win these kinds of matches.
“Arsenal beat Swansea [City], for example. We lost against Swansea, even though we were the better team, but they have beaten them 3-0.”
Murmurs of discontent are steadily increasing and van Gaal will need to turn around results, and perhaps more importantly, performances, quickly if he is to get the Old Trafford faithful back on his side. He will have to start with the clash against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League next week.
