Louis van Gaal: We are not that far behind in the title race


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes his side can still win the title.

The Red Devils have failed to win any of their four competitive fixtures since their campaign kicked-off but the Dutchman is convinced that there is still time to recover.

"Yes, it's always possible because we still have to play a lot of matches," van Gaal said during his press conference.

"We are not that far behind.

"You always want to buy the best players for the positions you need and we have done very well in the transfer market, in spite of not playing in the Champions League.

"Players are coming to Manchester United and now we have to produce results and start our season."

With a number of key players out injured, the Dutchman admits that he was forced to change his preparation scheme to rectify the problem.

"Yes, this [injuries] is a big concern, I think," van Gaal added.

"Now, we have a lot of injuries so I’m evaluating why.

"I've changed my preparation scheme because of that, for example, and I’ve also changed what we have to do after the match. I have changed the schedule of times.

"I have always said I am not only evaluating the players but I am also evaluating myself and my staff."
