Van Gaal shrugs off United jeers: Why are you shouting ‘attack, attack, attack’?

Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal has shrugged off the jeers from home fans after their stalemate with West Ham.

United were booed off yet again at Old Trafford as they dropped to fourth in the Premier League after their latest poor showing in front of goal.

“The fans are disappointed,” the United manager said. “I know that because I am also disappointed and so are my players.”

“They want to score every minute of the game but it’s not possible.

“But I don’t understand that they are shouting ‘attack, attack, attack’ because we are the attacking team and not West Ham.”

“It is in every game like that because we are more dominating than our opponent.”

Van Gaal defended his tactics, saying his possession-style football had served him well during his successful spells in Spain, Holland and Germany.

“(The booing fans) don’t like the style of play from Manchester United, but everyone knows in advance that all the teams of Louis Van Gaal is playing like that,” he added.

“So when you have that question, then I say, okay, in Barcelona or Bayern Munich or AZ we have played like that.”
