Louis van Gaal thanks Man-U fans for support
The Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal has expressed gratitude to the club’s fans for their patience in the tough times. He expressed his joy after the local derby where they defeated their city rival Man.City 4-2.
Louis van Gaal was obviously elated at the 4-2 beating of Man. City at the much talked about derby said, ‘I am very pleased because the fans are pleased and we are playing for them. The fans have not always had a good time because we started very bad. But still they were supporting and now the results are coming back. It’s great to be a supporter of Man-U right now.
‘Its three points. We are four points ahead of the fourth in the table and I am very happy for the fans. I have seen what it means for them. They always support us when the results were not good.
‘It’s the best atmosphere I have seen here. A fantastic result. ‘We started very badly. It was not Man-U, we were very nervous. I don’t know why. We had no person on the ball. I don’t know why. But when we score the goal. From that moment we had more confidence. ‘The second half was much better.
He criticised himself for taking Michael Carrick off the pitch due to injury leaving the players with no idea that they were down to 10 men.
‘I must bring Michael Carrick off the pitch with an injury which was a bit stupid from me as some players didn’t know we only had 10 men. That was not so smart.
Meanwhile, Juan Mata who scored the 3rd goal said the result was just another step towards the champion’s league. He said his side showed character to defeat City that had an intense start to the game.
According to Mata, ‘the atmosphere was crazy; it’s something we will never forget. We have six games to go and have to keep going. It’s a big win and a boost to the confidence. But Arsenal is a great team and City and Liverpool will stay fighting until the end.’
Ashley Young, Marouane Fellani, Juan Mata and Chris Smalling goals were sandwiches between Sergio Aguero’s two strikes for City. The Manchester United victory places them third on the table behind Arsenal and league leader Chelsea.
