Louis van Gaal: No Europa League matches will help our quest for a Top Four finish


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says he is a "proud manager" after his side edged past Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils needed all three points to keep in touch with the Top Four and it was young Marcus Rashford once more who stole the headlines as he scored the only goal of the game.

United are now just one point from their rivals with West Ham United also in the fight for a Champions League spot.

"We played a very good first-half with a goal and also had more chances and we didn't receive a lot of chances against us," van Gaal is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"In the second-half we had to start again, we started well but after that we had to fight till the end because we were tired from playing on Thursday.They played on Tuesday so that is two days more rest which is important.

"I am a very proud manager today.

"This victory was necessary the gap was four points and now is one point, plus we are equal with West Ham which is important, what is possible? I can not say.

"We do not have Thursday matches now and that is a positive thing.

"[Marcus] Rashford is very quick and [Martin] Demichelis looked like the years are catching up with him. He was a very good defender, he was my centre-back in Bayern but that is the life of football."
