Van Gaal declares United must win Europa League

Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal admits his side must now try to win the Europa League.
United’s 3-2 defeat by Wolfsburg on Tuesday saw them drop out of the Champions League.

“I am working very hard to do what we can do,” said the 64-year-old.

When asked by if he felt any uncertainty about his role, he responded: “No doubts. I don’t have any.

“You can lose and win in sport, you have to accept it.”

“The problem is that we have to meet with the expectation. At a club like Manchester United they are very high.”

Speaking before Saturday’s Premier League game with Bournemouth, the Dutchman was asked if he would be happy if he just won the Europa League this season.

He replied: “Just? You think it’s just? I’m not thinking like that.

“I have already won the Europa League with Ajax in my first season, and I was very proud of that. For me, it is a big competition.”
