Manchester United gathering pace under slow-starter Van Gaal

A 90-minute documentary about Louis van Gaal was aired on MUTV this week in which the Manchester United manager spoke passionately about his fabled philosophy.

Philosophy. It is a word we have heard from Van Gaal almost every time he has opened his mouth since he started the job last July, but finally it is starting to produce results at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman began the season asking for three months to get United back into shape. It took twice as long as predicted, but the manner of United’s back-to-back victories over Tottenham and Liverpool suggests the players are now implementing the message.

The story is too old to be commented.
