Van Gaal wants Manchester United players to be ‘horny’ against Midtjylland

Louis van Gaal wants his Manchester United players to get ‘horny’ for Thursday night’s clash with FC Midtjylland.

The Red Devils host the Danish champions in the Round of 32 second leg at Old Trafford following last week’s 2-1 defeat in Herning and the manager has asked his players to be hot to trot in a bid to successfully navigate the return bout.

“We have to keep the ball better and we have to move the ball quicker – that’s always what we have to do,” said van Gaal, before offering the amusing.

“Desire…it is a great word. I often use the word ‘horny’ with my players.”

Regarding the clash with Jess Thorup’s side, the Dutchman added: “I think Midtjylland has a very good organisation, very detailed … they play with diagonal pressing.

“I do that also with my team. Not many teams are doing that. And when I see the data of Midtjylland they have always won against English opponents.”
