Van Gaal: Manchester United team spirit no fluke

Louis van Gaal says the team spirit at Manchester United hasn’t simply come naturally.

The Red Devils have won four games in all competitions and Van Gaal admits there’s been a conscious effort to develop the unity throughout the squad.

He said: “I think the atmosphere is always the most important thing. When you go to work and have a sad atmosphere, then you don’t go in with open eyes.

“It is very important and we have spoken a lot about the atmosphere in the dressing room. I did some changes in the approach and structure and rhythm of the day to raise the atmosphere.

“In football and in sport, you have to win to raise the atmosphere, so now we have won three times and now everyone is happy – the fans are happy, even the media are happy. It is unbelievable.”
