Louis van Gaal on victory in the FA Cup and the "fabulous" Anthony Martial


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was a "very happy coach" after his side's 3-1 away win against Derby County in the FA Cup.

The Red Devils have been struggling for form before last night's game but produced a very convincing display to reach the 5th round of the competition.

And the Dutchman says the performance was just what he wanted from his players.

"I am very happy, I am a very happy coach," van Gaal said after the game.

"The performance was also very good and I said that at half-time; that we can continue with the way we had played in the first half.

"We gave a goal away and it was by ourselves again, but I liked the performance in the first half, it had a lot of confidence and that is back which is very important. The second half was even better, we created a lot of chances and we scored goals. But also we created more chances to score more goals.

"We have won almost every game in 2016 - against Southampton we lost and that was because of the lack of confidence. We played at home and the fans were supporting us, so it [our performance] was a little bit ridiculous.

"But that's how it was. Now the confidence is back, we dared to play again and in spite of the pressure of Derby County in the second half we met that pressure, we created chances and we scored fantastic goals I have to say. The second and third were fantastic combinations and fantastic finishes as well.

"He [Anthony Martial] started not so good, I think, but I said that to him and after the first 20 minutes he came into the match and he was fabulous. I am very happy that he is a Manchester United player because I think he shall be a great player for Manchester United for a long time."
