Louis van Gaal on the defeat, pressure and the possibility of getting the sack


Manchester United Louis van Gaal has admitted that the performance from his players against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon was not good enough.

The Red Devils suffered their third consecutive defeat in all competitions as they went down 2-1 against Alex Neil's men.

United's last win this season was almost a month ago, a 2-1 away win against Watford.

And the Dutchman admits that it's not an easy moment for his side.

"I can say a lot of things but every word is too much I think. You can see what confidence is doing to the players," van Gaal is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"Now it's very important that everybody sticks together, but that was not good enough today. We have to win against Norwich and we know that.

"[Pressure?] That's the football world. I know that, my board knows that, my players know that. We're not used to that because normally we win, so it's a difficult period.

"We've lost three matches in a row so it's not happening so much for Manchester United. We can't accept that and that's why I have to repeat, we have to stick together and believe in ourselves.

"I've encountered these circumstances also with other teams and other staff. The main thing is that you have to be professional and do the things that you have to do and work very hard to come out of this bad period.

"It's not up to me to say what I think about that question [if I'll be given time to turn things around] but we shall see."
