Manchester United Will Bounce Back – Louis van Gaal

Leicester 5-3 Manchester United – Louis van Gaal in deep thought, Ryan Giggs in deep disbelief

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal insists that his side will bounce back following their incredible 5-3 defeat away at Leicester City.

Just a week after the Dutch coach recorded his first win as the Red Devils’ manager, a 4-0 home demolishing of Queens Park Rangers, Van Gaal was brought down to earth by the English Premier League new boys Leicester.

Slack defending from the Old Trafford club allowed a 3-1 winning scoreline to go down to a final 5-3 loss at the King Power Stadium, which meant that the Foxes completed their first home win over the 20-time English champions in 29 years.

Van Gaal, who spent over £150 million in the summer, is refusing to panic despite his side being able to pick up just five points from their opening five matches.

“I cannot say that I am happy, but in the world of football, these matches happen,” said Van Gaal, who ended up with 10 men in his side following Tyler Blackett’s red card.

“In my first year as trainer-coach of Barcelona we were 3-0 ahead (against Valencia) with a quarter of the match to play and we lost 3-4.”

“It can happen.”

“We had the game in our pocket, but we gave it away. That I don’t like, but I am convinced we shall improve.”

Captain Wayne Rooney criticised his side’s defending during that match, and told MUTV: “Overall, it wasn’t good enough as a team.”

“We played some good stuff at times and scored some great goals, but we made too many mistakes as a team and have to do better.”

Van Gaal, meanwhile, lashed out at his players for failing to kill the game off.”

“We made such big errors,” said the 63-year-old, who handed Radamel Falcao his debut at the King Power Stadium.”

“We did not keep possession.”

United, who are already missing out on Phil Jones, could now be without Johnny Evans for a while after he hobbled off being on the receiving end of a challenge from Ulloa.

“I don’t know how bad it is,” Van Gaal said.

”We will see (on Monday), he will probably have a scan.”

Welcome to the Premier League, Louis van Gaal.
